Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

SKU: PL29

by Scott Antes

PLANSteelStringSmallConcert6stringPL29at850copyrightThe plan on this page answers the call to those requesting a plan for a smaller guitar. Drawn by Scott Antes, a mechanical engineer by training, with a long history of instrument building, his experience and expertise are well illustrated in these fine plans.

If you are ordering our pre-carved, slot-head neck to use in conjunction with the PL29 parlor guitar plan, please be aware of the following: The PL29 plan features a guitar with 24.5" scale and the pre-carved neck that we offer is a 24.9" scale neck. As on the old Martin O shaped guitars, many of the small sized guitars being made today (Goodall, Santa Cruz, Charles Hoffman) use a longer scale length. Doing so locates the bridge nearer the center of the soundboard, thus "sweetening" the sound. Be sure that you place the bridge (and bridge plate) according to the 24.9" scale length on your guitar and not according the placement shown on the plan!

See Acrylic guitar template for this plan.
