The classical guitar mold set is used to bend and laminate guitar sides, make the linings, and install the linings as demonstrated in the book and DVD by John Bogdanovich. The molds are designed for the guitar in both the book and the DVD. The shape of the plantilla is the same as a ’37 Hauser classical guitar. the molds are made on a CNC machine for ultimate accuracy. The molds and cauls are bundled together for a savings.
In order to create linings as described in the book four mahogany laminations are required. These laminations are approximately .042″ thick. This thickness is not available from wood suppliers therefore these pieces must be milled from larger stock. Now a complete set is available for building your guitar.
The classical guitar lining mold kit is a two piece mold used to laminate strips of wood to form guitar linings. Made with CNC accuracy the mold will produce linings that fit the guitar sides perfectly. Material to make the glue cauls necessary to install the linings is included. This mold will work with both the book, DVD and ’37 Hauser classical guitar.
The caul kit includes all the material necessary to create the side mold glue caul and the caul necessary to install the linings. All the material is pre-cut. Masonite is available pre-bent for the guitar in the book and DVD, or straight for a guitar design of your choice. Instructions for construction are included.
