Testimonials

“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."

Guitarmaking: Tradition & Technology

SKU: BS0S

 

Often called the "Bible" of guitar making this is the most thorough and detailed book available building for both classical and steel string guitar.
With this book the authors fill the gaps that are missing in many of the other books on guitar construction. Both Mr. Cumpiano and Mr. Natelson have had many years of experience in teaching guitar construction and the book is written from the point of view of one who has taught. Their detail and thoroughness are evident in the orderly layout and clear, informative text and photos. As one student mentioned, their methods of carving the neck with a chisel are much more elegant and craftsmen-like than shaping with rasps, surforms, and files. It is a must for every student luthier, and there is undoubtedly much that can be learned by the experienced guitar builder. 380 pages, 347 photographs, and 121 line drawings. Softbound.
