The advanced level premium classical guitar making kit contains all the key elements like the templates, molds and some of the tools necessary to build the classical guitar described in the award winning 10-DVD box set “Making a Concert Classical Guitar with John S. Bogdanovich”. The plans included with the kit are the same plans that I build my guitars from today.
This classical guitar making kit can be considered an advanced-level kit. The guitar design and techniques used to make the guitar in the 10-DVD box set are a bit more challenging that those in the book. The guitar design is a bit more sophisticated with different solutions to some of the design problems inherent in a classical guitar. Changes to the guitar design include an evolved bracing pattern for the soundboard and more elegant treatment of the upper bout for the fingerboard.
