Reseña del editor

Making Master Guitars is a craftsman's handbook about the exciting and challenging pursuit of making classical guitars, a craft that the author reveals to be surprisingly accessible by following his instructions. The book is unique in that it includes nine separate detailed plans of instruments constructed by internationally famous guitar-makers. The author has had the rare opportunity of examining these instruments in detail, and has made many replicas of each one. Part one: The Master Makers and their Guitars is devoted to separate chapters on each famous maker, including Antonio de Torres, Hermann Hauser, Santos Hernandez y Aguado, Ignacio Fleta, Robert Bouchet, Daniel Friederich and Jose Romanillos. The reader will find historical information about the life of and influences on each makers, as well as detailed sets of working drawings for their guitars. Also included are rare photographs of the guitars. Part two: Workshop, Tools and Materials provides essential information about the tools, working environment and material needed by the guitar-maker. Part three: Guitar Construction - The Spanish Method comprises a step-by-step method of guitar construction, illustrated by numerous photographs and drawings. The method of making a guitar is presented with great clarity. So that even the newcomer to this fascinating craft will be able to produce a superb instrument. This book will be essential for the guitar-maker and the historian, providing as it does a unique record of the different methods of guitar design and strutting systems that have evolved since Antonio de Torres first defined the essential characteristics of the modern classical guitar in the 1850s.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Greatest book on classical guitar 1 de noviembre de 2003
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
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

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
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.

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.

Por J. M. Roncken - Publicado en
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!
