In order to build a traditional Spanish classical guitar you’ll need a good solera. This solera can be used to create both the guitar in the book and the guitar in the dvd.
The J.S. Bogdanovich Guitars solera kit comes partially constructed. Kit includes rims, wood for upper and lower bout patches, hardware and the veneer covered solera base. Detailed construction of the solera is covered in the book “Classical Guitar Making” A Modern Approach to a Traditional Design” and in the DVD series “Making a Concert Classical Guitar with John S. Bogdanovich”.
The 3/4″MDF substrate has been covered on both top and bottom surfaces with a hardwood veneer for stability. Wood patches for shaping the lower and upper bouts are provided for carving. The rims have been pre-assembled and the bolt holes on the rims have been pre-drilled for easy alignment. This classical guitar solera kit may be used to create the guitar from the book or the DVD. Currently available in 650mm scale length only.
