“Classical Guitar Making: A Modern Approach to a Traditional Design”

Classical Guitar Making Book by John BogdanovichJohn S. Bogdanovich is the author of “Classical Guitar Making: A Modern Approach to a Traditional Design”. This book is a complete guide to making a high quality classical guitar. Over 600 photos and illustrations clearly explain the entire guitar building process in great detail with the first time guitar builder in mind.

This book is an example of passion with the guitar. It’s well written, beautifully photographed covering all steps of classical guitar construction that follows a high grade standard.  I have bought a lot of books about lutherie, but this is one is far the best. It makes evident in every detail how Mr Bogdanovich loves what he does.
