Vince D Posted December 4, 2008 Report Share Posted December 4, 2008 Ive built about 4 electric guitars before, but Ive always wanted to make a classical. I started this project when I was 15 and got to mad at it to finish it. So now 3 years later. I have alot of spare time and I would love to complete it. I started with some Bolivian Mahogany that was my grandfathers. The wood is probably 50+ years old. I also got western red cedar for the top, and cocobolo for the back and sides. I have a book called guitarmaking tradition and techonolgy by william cumpiano. One problem Im seeing is the cocobolo is twisted on the sides and back. Its been laying flat for a few years. I was Thinking about starting the back and sides over and using walnut. Also the first time I glued the veneer on the head stock it came off while I was filing the neck. Now Its almost impossable to gule and veneer on there. any tips? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
