Publisher Comments:

A step-by-step guide to a unique instrument, made to the reader's own specification and design

Many people are frustrated by the mass-produced guitar and dream of something more unique. This practical book will help readers achieve that dream, and will inform and enlighten them along the way. Drawing on a range of ideas and techniques, it explains the process in a clear and logical way, thereby demystifying the task and making the guitar a joy to build and then to play. It covers tools, techniques, and selection of materials; how to avoid pitfalls and make faster progress; and how to achieve a professional finish and set up the guitar. From making the initial templates to gluing the fingerboards, it provides careful instruction on the entire detailed process.

About the Author

Nick Blishen worked in the electronics industry for more than 20 years as a prototype wireman, test engineer, and design draughtsman before making a major career change and going back to college to study guitar making. He then set up his own workshop, making guitars and repairing instruments for local musicians and music shops. He is a course leader and senior lecturer for a university degree course in musical instruments.
