Melvyn Hiscock's "Make Your Own Electric Guitar" has been the first choice for aspiring guitar makers for more than 20 years. Now he offers the same no-nonsense approach to describe how to successfully make acoustic guitars.
Every aspect of the task of building a guitar is presented in a clear, helpful, and often humorous style that dispenses with much of the folklore of guitar-making and explains how to do the job in simple, easy-to-understand terms. Each step is fully illustrated with photos of the five guitars made especially for the book. An in-depth look at the processes used in the Martin guitar factory describes how major manufacturers solve similar problems and reveals how their methods can be adapted for home workshop use. Not just a how-to guide, this book is also fascinating reading for guitar enthusiasts who are interested in understanding guitars.
