Build Your Own Acoustic Guitar: Complete Instructions and Full-Size Plans

Build Your Own Acoustic Guitar: Complete Instructions and Full-Size Plans

(Book). Every guitarist dreams of owning a handmade instrument, but for most, the cost is likely to be prohibitive. The alternative building your own fine guitar is not as difficult as you might imagine, given some skill, patience, and the expert guidance of a master luthier. Every step of construction is fully covered, from choice, selection, and preparation of woods, to consideration of size, bracing, and tonal qualities. Each step of the building sequence is clearly photographed in color, with variations to the standard design shown to enable you to personalize your instrument as you make it. Briston, England-based Jonathan Kinkead has been building guitars for nearly 30 years. His craft is born out of experience and intuition rather than a strict following of technical detail. The resulting beauty of form and distinctive tone have earned him his reputation as one of the world's most respected independent luthiers.

A few months later, I was playing it! It was an amazing and memorable experience. I decided to do it again, and again ...  Now twelve years later, many more guitars have come out of my little home shop—all from kits. Brazilian rosewood w/Coastal Redwood... Indian rosewood w/cedar ...mahogany w/Sitka ... Indian rosewood w/red spruce—all kinds of standard and exotic wood combinations and body styles. It has been a blast. And, it has produced this book about acoustic kits—the only book specifically dedicated to acoustic kits and their place in the guitar building world.  Complete Guide to Building Kit Acoustic Guitars has helped hundreds, possibly thousands, of beginning guitar builders worldwide to begin to build their own quality acoustic guitars. Until now, it's only been available with spiral binding. With this revision, the perfect binding is also available.  Here are a few highlights:    Why a...

One-string Cigar Box Guitar DiddleyBow Kit - Easy to Build, all parts, hardware & instructions included

This is a complete, ready-to-assemble cigar box diddley bow kit designed in the C. B. Gitty workshops to allow just about anyone to build a fun, easy-to-play instrument. We have taken all of the guess-work out of it - every part and piece that you will need is included in the kit, and our fully illustrated assembly guide will walk you confidently through building your diddley bow. **** What is a diddley bow? A diddley bow is a one-string instrument whose lineage goes back thousands of years. The first prototype diddley bow (in the style also known as a Musical Bow) was painted on cave walls in France upwards of 15,000 years ago! Traditionally, diddley bows were made using a plank with two nails/posts with a tightened string stretched between them. When that string is plucked or struck with a stick, and a smooth hard object is used as a slide and moved up and down on the string, different pitches result and melodies can be played. You can see a picture of the style of diddley bow built from this kit above.
