  • 1937 Hauser classical guitar (ref: PL64)

    by Guild of American Luthiers

    Segovia called this the "guitar of the epoch". Shortly before his death, Segovia donated this instrument to the Metropolitan Museum in New York. R.E. Brune had the opportunity to study, measure, and photograph this important historical guitar in December 1991. Brune originally offered a hand-drawn plan which was difficult for new builders to use. Since then the plan has been completely re-worked by the Guild of American Luthiers and is an easy-to-read and exceptionally detailed two-page technical drawing.

    This is a nicely drawn 2 page set of plans for a 650mm fan-braced guitar designed by Colorado luthier Robert O’Brien (author of our very popular ”Tips du Jour” videos). Robbie has used these plans to teach many of his classical students, so they are tried and tested.

  • Plan, 1864 Antonio de Torres (ref: PL58)

    Torres established a strutting pattern of seven fan struts and two closing bars, which gave the soundboards on his small instruments the support they needed while allowing the wood to vibrate enough to produce a balanced sound.

    This plan produces an elegantly shaped guitar which, although smaller than some modern concert guitars, is very visually appealing. Drawing by Roy Courtnall Summerfield.

  • Plan, 1888 Antonio de Torres, short scale (ref: PL59)

    Many guitar makers find it interesting to build a small guitar, in contrast to a full-size guitar. This is an interesting design to follow - the small guitar has a surprisingly vibrant and penetrating sound, especially in the treble range. The smaller volume of air contained inside the soundbox means that the bass range is less full, but provided a well-balanced instrument is constructed, the result is usually very pleasing.

  • Plan, 1933 Santos Hernandez Flamenco (ref: PL75)

    Santos Hernandez was the most gifted and famous maker of flamenco guitars in the 20th century. His work on perfecting the design of the flamenco guitar helped establish it as a fine instrument.

    There are two basic ways in which the flamenco guitar differs from the classical. First is in the choice of woods to use, and second is in the design and thickness of the component parts. The strutting in the flamenco is usually kept quite simple because the rather open, earthy sound is best achieved if the soundboard is not too controlled. Santos Hernandez used seven fan struts, but no closing struts at the lower end of the guitar. The weight of the guitar is kept to a minimum by using a thin soundboard, and thin Cypress for the back and ribs.

  • Plan, 1963 Hernández Y Aguado, No. 249, classical guitar (ref: PL19)

    This is a lightly built, Spruce top guitar with characteristically even sound over the whole range. A similar instrument, made two years later in 1965 was played by John Williams on several recordings. He then sold it to Bream, who also recorded with it (photographs of the guitar are featured on their record covers). This is an interesting guitar—a large instrument, but lightly constructed.

    A large-bodied, robust instrument with a powerful sound, this plan is typical of the Cedar soundboard instruments produced by Fleta. This guitar is identical to the Fleta played by Segovia for many years. These instruments now fetch very high prices. The plan includes measurements of the Fleta bracing system.

  • Plan, 1972 Daniel Friedrich classical guitar (ref: PL21)

    Daniel Friedrich builds in his Paris workshop and adopts a thoroughly scientific approach based on the Torres and Bouchet designs. He measures the stiffness of his soundboards and braces and has used both Cedar and Spruce for the top. He laminates the ribs, (since 1970) for a total thickness of 4mm! His guitars are said to possess good sustain, tone, and great power. Among the players of his instruments are Stein-Erik Olsen, the late Ida Presti, and Alexander Lagoya, who guided Friedrich in his early years as a maker. Drawing by Roy Courtnall Summerfield.

  • Plan, lattice-brace concert guitar (1995) (ref: PL76)

    In recent years a number of guitarmakers have worked with new ideas for strutting designs. One successful innovation has been the lattice braced top, of which there are many variations. The overall shape of the guitar is taken from Hermann Hauser, and within this outline are placed 10 small struts which interlock with one another, providing a strong supporting structure for the soundboard. The soundboard is thicknessed to 2mm all over. The success of this design is in the way the relatively thin soundboard is given strong but flexible support. This produces a guitar with a powerful and penetrating range of tonal colors.

We can bend sides to a classical guitar shape based on our PL64/PL28/PL40 plans (they are all very similar). The sides are sanded to approximately .090" and rough tapered from 3.75" at the upper bout to 4.5" at the lower bout. Don't make a choice if you plan on doing this yourself. We recommend to new builders that they have us bend their sides the first time around.

**If you choose to have your fingerboard slotted, you must make a selection in the remaining fingerboard customizations as well. 

Nut Position - Choose either the Standard or Zero Fret nut position option. The Standard nut slot moves the kerf back half the width of the slot. Our slots are .024”, so we move it back .012”. This puts the string’s breakaway point (the edge of the nut) at “true zero”. The Zero Fret option places the nut slot so that it is centered at the zero point of the scale. This works for those who install a zero fret – a fret at the nut position (with the actual nut getting placed just behind it to position the string spacing and guide the strings towards the tuning machines). Some players like a guitar with a zero fret as it helps eliminate the tonal differences between fretted and unfretted notes but it is not traditional on a classical guitar.

Rosewood is a pretty standard choice here but cannot be exported outside the United States. Indian Ebony is also popular.

  • Purfling, BW 10/10

    Anything on the edge of an instrument that isn't the outermost edge (binding) is called "purfling".

    Fiber veneer is very flexible and no bending is needed prior to installation. Wood veneer may need to be bent to avoid breakage depending on the shape of the instrument you are building and the number of laminates in the layup. One can sometimes us a simple household iron to bend these to the appropriate shape. These laminates should not be soaked.

  • Sapele neck blank, 1st grade, 35" x 3" x 7/8" (ref: NKSA1353)

    A 35" neck generally allows you to produce your neck and heel from the same stock which prevents issues with color/grain mismatch.

    African Sapele features an attractive ribbon figure than runs the direction of the grain. It is an excellent alternative to Honduran Mahogany, with similar color, and above average stability. It is a little heavier than Honduran Mahogany and the texture is not quite as even.

    First grade necks and heels are straight-grained, quartersawn with a 25° variance off quarter allowed.

    Khaya has often been overlooked as a substitute for genuine Honduran Mahogany. We have carried it for years for backs and sides, and though it is a very attractive wood, the wide pores, lighter weight and pinkish color we usually see in this species clearly distinguish it from "the real thing". But we have now found that there are different strains of Khaya which look nearly identical to Honduran Mahogany - or at least present themselves as the best substitute we have come across so far!

Bridges are available either blank for carving your own, or pre-carved. We recommend the pre-carved BRI1SS non-compensated (the most traditional choice) or the BRI1 compensated classical bridges, but if you want to carve your own bridge, either the Ebony BBAE1CL or Rosewood BBRW1CL blanks (cannot be exported outside the USA) are good choices.

Kerfing (or lining) provides a gluing surface for the joining of the backs, tops, and sides. 4 pieces are needed to complete a guitar, 2 for the top and 2 for the back. You can purchase 4 of one kind or two each of two different kinds to achieve the look you desire.

Mahogany or Spruce are pretty standard choices, but you may wish to upgrade with the reversed kerfing for a cleaner look.
