About this title:

Synopsis:

Making Master Guitars is a craftsman's handbook about the exciting and challenging pursuit of making classical guitars—a craft that the author reveals to be surprisingly accessible by following his instructions. The book is unique in that it includes nine separate detailed plans of instruments constructed by internationally famous guitar-makers. The author has had the rare opportunity of examining these instruments in detail, and has made many replicas of each one. It is presented in three parts: "The Master Makers and Their Guitars," "Workshop, Tools, and Materials," and "Guitar Construction—The Spanish Method."

About the Author:

Roy Courtnall is a largely self-taught producer of lutes and guitars and also runs several Adult Education classes in guitar and lute making.
