Guitar Construction

One would think that guitar construction has been largely standardized over the course of many decades and centuries. It turns out that such is not the case. Not only do regional traditions and differences exist, but also individual luthier’s interpretations and methods eventually emerge.  In this section of the website, I’ll share articles and photos pertaining to the various aspects of guitar construction, material selection, finishing, etc. I will attempt to keep it non-technical, and hopefully, enjoyable to musicians and guitar aficionados interested in the construction of the guitar.
