This classical guitar making book by John S. Bogdanovich has become one of the most popular guitar making references available. “Classical Guitar Making: A Modern Approach to a Traditional Design” is the ultimate guide to building a classical guitar. If you are planning to make your first guitar, this book is a great introductory guide. Only some basic woodworking skills and a minimally equipped shop are required.
Alternative guitar building methods are presented here. The book focuses on the use of hand tools. Only a few power tools and a couple of pieces of equipment are necessary. The book was written with the first time builder in mind, but anyone with some guitar making experience could benefit from some of the content. A good builder is always looking to improve their guitar making skills.
Due to the large amount of information covered, the book sticks to topic – guitar making. Explanations of basic woodworking techniques have been omitted but can be found on the site. Woodworking references can be found in the bibliography of the book and in the guitar making technical reference section of this web site. If the reader needs help with some basic woodworking skills, they can consult the mentioned references for information.
