The premium classical guitar making kit provides the key ingredients to build a guitar using the methods demonstrated in my book. The guitar design as well as the building techniques in the book are geared toward first time guitar builders. This kit contains most of the necessary components to make a high quality guitar using my book as your guide.
Molds and Templates Made with CNC Accuracy
The key components of the premium classical guitar making kit are created on a CNC machine for ultimate accuracy. The accuracy of these key components will improve your results. Making things like templates and molds, by hand is difficult. Regardless of skill level you will not produce the best results possible building these yourself. Everything in the kit works together which makes alignment and assembly easier throughout the process.
The solera kit is not included in the premium kit. However, it is possible to create the solera accurately yourself . Making a stable and reliable solera will require a re-saw bandsaw capable of re-sawing stock at least 5 inches in width. If you do not have this ability you may want to consider the introductory level classical guitar making master kit which includes a solera kit with all the major parts already cut.
The premium classical guitar making kit includes some of the tools developed by John for guitar making. Tools include the 2 Pi Rosette Cutting Router Attachment for cutting the sound hole, rosette channels and rosette patch. Use the adjustable classical guitar tuner drilling to drill the holes for your tuning machine rollers. This jig makes drilling your holes easy and accurate – and you don’t have to remove the template to do it. The kit also includes a set of radius sticks, radiused sanding pads, the Buzz-Off® fret leveling kit, and a glue squeeze bottle and roller.
Use the guitar making products in this kit to work along with both the book or DVD. I also use all these products in my shop every day.
Start with a solid foundation built to give you the confidence you need to accurately create a quality guitar. Save lots of prep work. Start working on your guitar faster with this kit.
