Guitar Building Basics
Acoustic guitars make the perfect woodworking project.
Whether you're a professional musician or simply an interested wood worker,
building a guitar is a very satisfying project.
Guitar Building Basics presents three, start-to-finish assembly sequences
. Each sequence uses high quality color photography to illustrate every step of the process;
from gluing on the top and bottom of the guitar,
to installing the strings,
and sanding the frets for a perfect set up.
The assemblies include everything from a fairly simple renaissance guitar kit, to a full,
dreadnought guitar assembled in a professional shop.
With the help of this new Guitar-Building book,
nearly any amateur wood worker can buy a guitar kit and assemble the whole thing at home using basic woodworking tools.
The key is patience and a good set of instructions
- provided by this new book with over 500 color images spread across 144 pages.
A talented musician with a guitar collection of his own,
Beau Allen Pacheco is the perfect author for this book.
Beau documents all the steps and skills needed to do a quality job,
then moves on to discuss the different types of wood, the tools you need, and how to set up the neck.
Whether you're a guitar player looking to buy a quality instrument for a bargain price, or a craftsman looking for that next project,
Guitar Building Basics will help you find the best kit and assemble it into a
finished guitar you'll be proud of for the rest of your life.
