These full size classical guitar plans and acetates are for the guitar constructed in the book “Classical Guitar Making: A Modern Approach to a Traditional Design”. The plans were developed because the only option for the plans in the book was to include them at a reduced size and provide a scale up factor. This does not result in consistent sizes across all copy machines, plus it is difficult to do.
These plans have been created in a CAD program to assure consistent sizing. Additional content has been added to the plans such as the side contour template as well as templates for the 15′ and 25′ radius sticks. These radius sticks are used to create the sanding dishes for the rims.
Acetates for both the top, and the back have been added for easy layout of the bracing. The soundboard acetate is as fully described in the guitar making book as well as the dvd series. The back acetate is used to lay out the back work board and is demonstrated in the guitar making 10-DVD box set. Both acetates will enable you to accurately position all the patches and braces on both the top and the back of the guitar.
The classical guitar plans and acetates are available in printed or digital download for 650 and 640mm scale lengths.
