Detailed Description

Making a Concert Classical Guitar - 10 DVD Set

John Bogdanovich is a world renown luthier and is also the author of the popular book Classical Guitar Making: A Modern Approach to a Traditional Design. John Bogdanovich has been building mostly concert classical guitars for performers and players all over the world for the last 15 years. The book is regarded in the guitar building world as one of the best books ever written on the subject.

In response to his readers, John has produced a DVD series on guitar building. This 10 DVD series demonstrates the construction of a concert classical guitar from beginning to end. This video series is the first of its kind on classical guitar making. Every step has been captured in amazing clarity using widescreen video format to help guide you in making a true concert level instrument. The content has been carefully edited making the viewing interesting, and flowing nicely. All processes are carefully explained with helpful graphics where necessary, leaving no stone unturned. This is a first rate production.

The guitar design used in this dvd series features an open lower transverse brace on the soundboard, designed to expand the area of the top directly involved in sound production and to improve the treble response of the instrument. This new design presents new challenges, and new techniques are implemented to meet them. Aimed at the experienced woodworker or luthier, this series shows how to utilize power tools and equipment to get the job done quickly, and more accurately. There is also ample close up video of detailed hand tool work.

This DVD series comes with a complete set of full size color drawings and acetates for the guitar as well as drawings for many of the jigs and fixtures used in the video. The following color drawings are included on disc 10:

  • Full sized guitar drawings
  • Top & Back acetate
  • Solera with rims
  • Side slot cutting jig
  • Purfling cutter revised
  • Inside heel cutting sled
  • Shooting boards
  • Bench hook
  • Wheat motif cutting & gluing fixtures
  • Bridge locator

Upon completion of the guitar there is a special appearance by international concert performer and recording artist Stanley Yates.

If you enjoyed the book, you will love this DVD series!
