Guitar Making Products - Get Started on Your Guitar Right Away
Templates, molds and work boards are necessary to make a guitar and will take time to build accurately. These products will enable you to get started right away. You can work on your guitar with full confidence knowing all your templates and molds have been created with ultimate accuracy.
The product development began following the release of the book. Readers expressed frustration at not being able to scale the plans up to full size with any accuracy and they could not find many of the tools, templates and such that I used in the book . That prompted me to put together a complete set of plans using a CAD program, and make them available. Creating these drawings laid the groundwork for creating templates, molds and some of the tools. I was the first person to benefit from these products and I can personally attest to their quality and usefulness as I use them every day. They have improved the accuracy of my work and ultimately the quality of my guitars, and generally made my life easier. Check out the products in the store.
Be sure to also check out the section showcasing guitars built by customers. These guys have created quality instruments and some of them had little woodworking background.
