Guitarmaking: Tradition and Technology
by Cumpiano and Natelson
Often called the "Bible" of guitar making this is the most thorough and detailed book available building for both classical and steel string guitar. The authors fill the gaps that are missing in many of the other books on guitar construction. Both authors have had many years of experience in teaching guitar construction and the book is written from the point of view of a teacher. 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.
Includes 347 photographs, and 121 line drawings.
