Expand your skill set and get better results no matter what level of experience you have. The excellent vividly detailed instruction will help you make a guitar that sounds great with optimal set up for playability. Both the video series and the book describe the making of a classical guitar in its entirety. And they each present a different guitar design.  Different guitar building techniques are also used to construct the guitar in each.

The book is geared toward the first time builder with and presents a traditional guitar design. The guitar building techniques demonstrated focus more on hand tool work. The guitar can be built using these methods with a minimally equipped shop.

The DVD presents a bit more challenging guitar design with more advanced building techniques. The techniques demonstrated use more power tools and equipment than those of the book. These techniques will have you working faster while getting better results. Theses techniques will work on the guitar in the book as well.
