"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!"

Arched Plates for Guitar Making w/Frank Finocchio




In this DVD, Frank Finocchio demonstrates his step-by-step process of forming arches without carving. Each building step is covered in detail and Frank’s years of teaching show through. He uses a minimum of specialty tooling and shows you what materials and tools you will need to follow along with him.

Frank is currently using arched backs on his classical and flat top acoustic guitars. He believes by eliminating the back braces sound waves move more freely thereby producing a quick response and a noticeable clarity in sound.
