These plans are quite useable. They could have included a few more details: There were no back transverse arching templates (one is led to assume that the back and top arching is identical), and the top graduations are not given; instead, it is suggested that one measure from the drawn plan for top and back thickness, although I would be surprised were the back and top thicknesses were identical in the actual instrument. Unfortunately, this isn't a very good way to document measurements, as there can be some slight distortion in the printing process or in the size of the paper, as it is subject to expansion/shrinkage due to humidity variations. It would not have been difficult to simply list the thicknesses at various points on the top. Also, it is apparent that the arch is cut as if it is not a cutaway instrument and then the cutaway is made; it would have been helpful to the less knowledgeable to have shown this more clearly.

All-in-all, as I indicated, this is a useable plan for the experienced luthier, but not for someone who doesn't really have much experience with archtop guitars. One may want to check out the D'Angelico New Yorker plan available from the Guild of American Luthiers for more detailed information about a different, but similar instrument.

If your serious about guitar making you have to try to build an archtop guitar and these plans help to demystify the process. They are very well displayed and easy to read. A valuable asset in the shop that should help to accurately recreate or add your own personal flare to this timeless classic instrument. I will buy from this vender in the future and I will recommend this item to a friend.
