Testimonials

“I received my order today and I just wanted to tell you thanks. The wood is exactly what I wanted, absolutely beautiful, the packaging was great and I'm looking forward to buying more from you. I've purchased tonewoods from other vendors and ebay before, but even the best from them doesn't compare to the quality and value of what I bought from you. Thanks again!”

Smaller Guitars (OM, 000) by Scott Antes

 

The plans on this page answer the call to those requesting plans for smaller guitars. 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: Our 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!
