Testimonials

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Respectfully, 
Tony Vines

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.
