I have completed to build my 1st acoustic guitar by myself. I also built all related jigs & tools which are very essential for building guitars both of acoustic & electric things. All photos & related articles were posted on my blog for 18 months at http://inhimwoodworking.blogspot.com and you can look at all 113 posts by searching “Acoustic Guitar Project”. My articles are written in Korean but you will see a lot of photos to show how my first guitar was made.

Yes, its Martin OM sized and sounds just like that, little heavy & elegant tone.

Because of self-studying each process & then making necessary jigs, building next steps, it took long time, probably more than 500-700 hours during 18 months I believe.

The guitar looks beautiful. I’ve always wanted to make one but I doubt I ever will because of the jigs and specialized tools required. Its the kind of project you don’t do to make just one.

Yeah, that’s true. If you want to make such an stringed musical instruments more than one, then do it. However if you set up all jigs and tools, then you can make a lot of different similar things, like acoustic & electric, bass, ukulele, etc until your hands is out of your control. How is that idea?

Beautiful, Something I have always wanted to do. I can fully believe that over 500 hours are invested in it. The next one will be faster. I built a wood strip kayak and have a sense for the time something like this takes. Over 60 hours just to build the form.
