Product Description

Twenty year veteran guitarist and guitar maker Bill Jehle blends traditional techniques of modern lutherie with the venerable cigar box guitar to create a radical new approach to learning the art of guitar building: build something quickly, simply and inexpensively first, then refine your technique for building a traditional guitar. All the techniques shown in the DVD directly apply to building a traditional guitar. These guitars are just a much more simple way to get started building and a perfect way to learn and experiment.

Also, you don't need plans to make a guitar like this. You learn how to make things work together right from the start. I'll show you how! It's EASY!

If you are interested in building your own guitar but have put off getting started for fear of having to buy hundreds of dollars worth of tools and tone woods, fear no more. How to Build a Guitar : The String, Stick, Box Method will reveal how to do it quickly and affordably while having the time of your life! What is really amazing about learning to build a traditional guitar by starting with a simple cigar box guitar is that everything is optional on these guitars. The frets, the finish, the number of strings, and even the wood working are all optional. You really can build a guitar out of anything with the String, Stick, Box Method! Once you've mastered the basics of construction, you can tackle many other advanced instruments confidently.

This DVD is for anyone interested in building their own guitar, and learning to do it simply in a "walk before you run" style. How to Build a Guitar: The String, Stick, Box Method covers:
* What is a Guitar?
* Layout and planning
* Bridge and nut placement
* String scale
* Calculation of fret positions
* Fret installation
* Neck tapering and profiling
* Headstock design
* Finishing and adding electronics
* Setup

All the while:
* Keeping cost to a minimum!
* Keeping the number of tools to a minimum!
* Maximizing the creativity and fun of building a guitar!
