BUILD YOUR OWN ACOUSTIC GUITAR JONATHAN KINKEAD PDF

Download Step Fret Board Building the fret board became a time consuming task. I needed to make a few decisions before I started. Did I want to buy a blank piece of rosewood, cut the slots and radius the surface myself or purchase a pre-slotted board with a radius? I decided to purchase. By the way the radius on the surface is supposed to make the guitar a little easier to play, so a flat fret board probably would have worked. Second decision, did I want to put and edge binding on the board?

Some experience of woodworking is necessary as there are techniques which beginners will find daunting. Key skills you need to master are: sawing, planing, sanding, routing and scraping. What materials and specialist tools do you need?

I use an aluminium tube and a blowtorch, but this requires a lot of feel and wood knowledge. Youtube is a brilliant resource for guitar building. I start by making a mould, two female versions of the shape cut out of plywood then spaced to give it the required height. I then plane and sand the top, back and sides to 3mm. Bend the sides to fit in the mould its never perfect but will be during final construction.

The top should be spruce for tone and back and sides pretty much anything that will bend. Added to these are struts for tone and strength. The two sides are joined by internal blocks, the front one having a joint for the neck.

There are several choices for this. Kerfing notched wooden strips which will bend is glued to the inside, top and bottom, to allow for a structural gluing surface for the top and back. Neck can be one piece or laminated horizontally or vertically. The final shaping and sanding of the neck is the longest part of the whole process. The fretboard or fingerboard should be as hard as possible, so wood choice is important.

Edges should be protected with bindings, which are hard wood or plastic, and require a groove to be routed to accommodate them. Carve and sand the bridge and glue in place via the soundhole using a deep-throat G-clamp.

Finishing should be done with a scraper as sanding will fill the grain. We then have several choices of protection, from spraying to french polishing. Setting up can take a very long time as the woods need to settle and acclimatise. Interested to get started on your own?
