“Just stumbled upon your website, after beginning a search to start a long-held desire to build an instrument, and all I can say is, "WOW'!!!! What an absolute treasure trove of delights, information, goodies! I look forward to ordering the fruits of a trawl through your extensive, if not mind-blowing array of products! WOW!"

David X

The Art of Lutherie




This book is intended to facilitate the beginner or advanced guitar maker in being able to better understand the guitar and it's components with the goal of optimizing the responsiveness, playability, and tonality of an instrument. If you have been reading "how-to" books that only tell you how to go through the steps of building a guitar, when what you really want to know is "Why", this book is the missing piece of the puzzle. Understanding "Why" is vital, not only so you can gain a deeper understanding of why others have developed the systems and techniques that they use, but more importantly, to empower you to make your own educated choices, and create the unique guitars that only you can. The world needs your art, your guitar, your important contribution.  

52 pages, softbound, includes DVD.
