Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

This is a practical handbook about making a classical guitar. The book includes eight separate plans of instruments constructed by internationally famous guitar-makers. Part one of the book is devoted to separate chapters on each famous maker, the second part provides information about the tools, working environment and materials needed by the guitar maker while the third part comprises a step-by-step method of guitar construction, illustrated by both photographs and illustrations.

Biografía del autor

Roy Courtnall made his first guitar under the supervision of his great-grandfather when he was twelve years old. After obtaining a BA (Hons) degree in Sculpture from London University he became more involved in making both lutes and guitars. He is now producing handmade instruments to order. Largely self-taught, he also runs several Adult Education classes in guitar and lute making. He is married and lives in Lincolnshire.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Una referencia para luthieres 31 de mayo de 2013
Por Emilio
Formato:Tapa dura|Compra verificada por Amazon
Con una encuadernación magnífica el libro, en la primera parte, trata de los grandes maestros de este arte (Torres, Santos Hernández, Bouchet, Aguado, Friederich, Fleta, Hause y Romanillos), acompaña planos completos de cada uno de ellos. A continuación, paso a paso, hace una explicación detallada de cómo construir una guitarra... Es una referencia.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Greatest book on classical guitar 1 de noviembre de 2003
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Great book that has measured drawings of many master guitars. Unlike steel string guitars, where a few models dominate, and look different, say Gibson vs. dreadnaught martin, classical guitars look externally quite similar, while varying a lot internally, and otherwise. Many of the great artists of the steel string guitar play factory models, for a variety of reasons. Top classical guitarists largely play models that originated in small shops with one or a few craftsmen. For these reasons anyone who wants to make a study of building classical guitars will find this eclectic group of guitars very important.
However, one should consider:
The building instructions are 1) European in orientation, few jigs, open assembly and so forth, actually the best place for any guitarmaker to start, but not how most here do; 2) Weak in places, because the writer is not an expert guitar builder himself, though overall very helpful, and a useful reference.
The flip side of a great book on classic designs is that it isn't a good book on current designs. Guitar making theory has advanced somewhat (though one doubts the new instruments are better, they are nonetheless preferred by many anyway). Tone vs. durability or volume for instance. There has been a huge amount of new detail added to modern classicals, for instance work on intonation, volume, wolf notes, fingerboard playability, longevity, and so forth. this stuff isn't here, but on the other hand, it's plastered over the internet.
If you have seen the violin book, this one isn't the same. The violin book was partnered with a greatish builder. Deals a lot with modern practice (though being violins, that isn't that different anyway), and the violin book doesn't have lots of useful measured drawings (any in fact), because you can get patterns of the ouline parts for strads etc...
With whatever reservations, this is the greatest book on the classical guitar, and very reasonably priced, it used to sell for 100.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A great book. It has really helped me make good guitars. 25 de marzo de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
This is the clearest, and most well-explained text I have found on guitar making. Everything is explained in great detail, and is therefore easy to follow. Courtnalls new book, THE ART OF VIOLIN MAKING, is similarly exellent on violin making, and has a foreword by Yehudi Menuhin.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas THE book on guitar making 26 de junio de 2001
Por john zeebol - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Having read all the other books on guitar making, I was amazed to find this one, Making mAster Guitars, so clear, detailed, yet logical and easy to follow. For the first time I felt able to tackle making my own guitar, and the results were pleasing. It would have been nice to have some colour pictures of the historial rosettes, etc., but even so, I advise any aspiring guitar makers to get this one.
I want to try making a violin next, and I will certainly be buying The Art of Violin Making, by the same author.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Dok Watson on "...Master Guitars" 17 de noviembre de 2010
Por G. Watson - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura|Compra verificada por Amazon
In my view this would be one of the important texts for an aspiring builder of classical guitars. The forward portion of the book focusses on the most famous builders. With the rough designs presented it becomes simple to compare how each builder "puts it all together." Which of course, is both beguiling and instructive: beguiling due to the diversity and variance in approaches (for example, the solera, a fundamental tool in building, differs in style between Bagonovich, Cumpiano and this Courtnall text; however it is instructional because those techniques chosen seem logical and coherent. A practiced luthier may take the book and build these guitars, a beginner might look more toward a clearer appraoch to one single insturment. Either way, if you love the classical guitar you will want to have and appreciate this text. I think now is the time for someone like Courtnall to include the more admired of today's contemporary guitars as he leaves off with the 1966 Ramirez (50 years have passed). It would be interesting to see how things have/are changing in the guitar makers studio as well -- how newer technologies influence the builder and the quality or tenor of the instrument (e.g., latticed bracing, replacements for Brazilian Rosewood, tuners, todays builders, today's tools -- I just received my LMI catalog -- tell me whether it is worth spending $700.00 on a side bender when a $15.00 pipe and torch accomplishes the same thing -- the answers to these types of questions would be interesting for a novice builder like myself). I highly recommend the book, however, it's the best I have seen on the history of the great guitars.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Excellent piece of work 26 de marzo de 2006
Por J. M. Roncken - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Although I do not build guitars myself, I am highly interested in its construction techniques. I have been an amateur guitarist for over 25 years now and planning to buy a handcrafted instrument build by one of the contemporary maestroes. In order to be well prepared I wanted to learn more on the history of guitar building, famous instruments and detailed info on how to build a guitar myself. Hauser, Romanillos, various instruments described in great detail with complete instructions on how to build these instruments yourself. The instructions are accurate, elaborate and extremely thorough and even aimed at people who have no expiernce in woodwork at all. This book has it all, even adresses where to obtain wood,tools etc. Highly recommendable!
