The Guitar Fix: The guitar junkie’s essential guide to designing, building or buying the ultimate guitar
This is the golden age of luthery. Guitars are more scientifically designed, better made, and evolving at a faster rate than ever. Not surprisingly, the most radical innovations are emerging from the work of
the steadily bourgeoning population of small, independent guitar builders.
Astonishingly, you could be one of them.
Get up to speed with the latest thinking about key variables that go into hand-making a great guitar, from design principles to wood choices and construction methods.
If you’re thinking of making your own guitar, this is an essential first stop. If you’re content just buying your next guitar – either custom-made or from a big cookie-cutter factory – this talk will give invaluable guidance on how to choose your instrument. If you’re a regular guitar junkie, come along for a free fix.
