This is a very thorough book and takes the reader through all the steps necessary to construct a classical or acoustic steel string guitar. The book comes complete with life size plans for the parts, as well as plans and instructions for building the various jigs required, including the side bending jig.
This is the first book I have bought on the subject of guitar building, and I have not yet built my first guitar. I have built most of the jigs and have found that with very few exceptions the plans for these are very complete (there were just a few small steps in the side bending jigs where I had to guess what to do, but I have tested the finished product and was very pleased).
Although I have not built a guitar yet, I have been through the book several times and understand the process. The book also painstakingly lays out the materials and tools needed, leaving no guesswork. Being brand new to building guitars, and this being my first book, I was perhaps conservative in rating the book 4 stars. Time may prove this to be a 5 star book, I just had a couple of questions left unanswered. I do highly recommend this book, it is worth ten times the price.
