Guitar Build #1: Hooligan Guitar Build Day's 1 and 2

05-14-2010 03:00 PM by rcflyer23 | 8 comments »

I have decided to build my own guitar. It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time and I hope to eventually turn it into a FT hobby someday.. So I finally took that first step this week. I got plans from Chris over at http://www.eguitarplans.com he draws up some really good plans. The body is going to be a 2 piece Solid Mahogany body. I started by cutting the two sides to length about 19” for this guitar so that I had a little extra to play with. Glue U...

Guitchair #1: Restoring an old school desk/chair into a guitar players chair

01-13-2015 08:57 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

A few years ago, I happened to find a nice old oak school desk chair on the curb in someones trash. I had been looking for such a chair to make into a guitar players chair. It was one of those chair-desk combos that originally had an arm desk on the right hand side. At some point in it’s life, someone sawed the desk support off the right front leg and used it as a chair. It also had a pretty hard life and ended up broken, split, and sitting outside at some point because the soft ...

1st Acoustic Guitar Happy-Fun Time #2: Wood Selection and Milling

09-04-2012 05:25 AM by Cosmicsniper | 4 comments »

In this part of the construction blog of my OM-sized 12-fret acoustic, I’ll give you some thoughts about wood selection and milling… WOOD SELECTION I mentioned in Blog post #1 that I wanted to construct this guitar from scratch. Not that I don’t like the nice selection of exotic back and sides as seen on eBay, but I greatly enjoy the process of taking a tree (or large board) and seeing something built from it. Though Walnut isn’t a traditional choice for guita...

Building a simple cigar box guitar #1: Fitting and shaping the neck

09-24-2012 02:38 AM by JJohnston | 0 comments »

In this series, I’ll be building a simple cigar box guitar. You can see just how simple by comparing it to a proper instrument – Randall Price’s tenor guitar, for example. It’s a “through neck” design, meaning the neck goes all the way through the body, and only it counteracts the tension in the strings. The box is non-structural; it just looks good, and serves as a resonating chamber. The first step is to mill up a neck blank, then use it to lay out ...

A Tale of Two Guitars #1: Introduction

01-24-2016 11:58 PM by fatandy2003 | 7 comments »

Here goes my first blog ever. My dad is a huge guitar enthusiast, and I have always been fascinated with the beauty of these instruments and the complexity of their construction. So, we have been tossing around the idea of building a guitar together for over a year now. This last Christmas, we finally decided to take the leap. We bought Solomon and Cumpiano’s book Guitarmaking: Tradition and Technology: A Complete Reference for the Design & Construction of the Steel-String Folk Guit...

Luthiery Fun #4: Bending the Sides Part 1

10-04-2010 06:47 AM by Chinitorama | 1 comment »

Still without a climate controlled work room, I’ll continue through the list of tasks that can be done without a dehumidifier. Next up is one of the steps that seems to mystify a lot of non-guitar types: side bending. There are many different approaches to this task ranging from hi-tech electric blankets to boiling. My method is based on conversations with luthier friends and guitar geek research. It’s also probably one of the simplest to set up without spending a ton on exp...
