Follow along as I build a tenor guitar. In part 4 you will see how the back and sides are dimensioned and brought to the final thickness – from a plank of roughsawn walnut to the 0.80” thick back and sides.

Glad you’re enjoying the blog. When you consider all it takes to build a guitar it can be overwhelming but like any big project when you break it down into individual steps it is doable. Thanks for following the build.
