Topic: Making First Classical Guitar
After 14 months I just finished my first hand made classical guitar. The ones I normally play I bought, making one has always been something I wanted to do. The long time period was to set up a proper area to work and an area for sticks made the right way to put pressure on for drying time. I used a maple neck, ebony fret board and bridged, red cedar top and back, and rosewood sides. The top, back, and sides are all solid wood. I bought a rosette already made. That is one part I would not attempt.
I did not work every day but when I did I enjoyed making this one. After playing for so many years I wanted to try it. In reality it make much more sense to buy the guitars you you want. The sound and how it plays is not as good as I had hoped and does not equal the 6 Yamaha guitars I now have. But at least I made one not knowing how it would sound in the end.
Have any of you made any type of guitar? How did it turn out?
