About the Book

This book is unique. There is only one comprehensive published manual for building C.F. Martin & Co. types of guitar kits, and this is it. The 108-page "building" section of the book takes you smoothly from one step to the next, with over 500 illustrations. Then, the 60-page Guitar Builder's Construction Journal, useful for all kits, is included. The book ends with valuable extra info for guitar kit builders.

(Please note, this is the regular square-bound version; a spiral-bound version is available direct from the author through Amazon's 3rd party marketplace.)

C.F. Martin & Co, Inc.-"America's Guitar Company"-makes great acoustic guitars. Martin also produces acoustic guitar kits-excellent kits!

But ... the booklet that comes included with the kit simply isn't adequate unless you are an experienced guitar builder already.

If you are building your first Martin kit, you will need a better set of instructions than Martin provides. This new construction guide fulfills that need.

With over 500 photos, in 168 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions, this easy-to-read book covers everything from unpacking the kit to setting up your guitar's action, including tools and supplies.A guided journal is also included.

This book is partner to my overview book, the popular 200-page Complete Guide to Building Kit Acoustic Guitars, also available on Amazon and other online stores.

I've spent twelve years building twenty kits, including several Martin kits, to research the differences between Martin's kits and those from Stewmac and LMI and others. My fourth Martin-style kit is completely detailed in this book-the only published construction manual dedicated to Martin-style acoustic guitar kits. (Kits vary a lot, like guitars from the different factories. Using one company's instructions for another company's kits can cause problems because of differences in design geometries.)

A sound file of the 000 guitar kit built in the book is available. If you would like to hear it, go to the link shown on the back cover of the book.

About the Author: I've done big corporate systems analysis, been a dish washer, worked grunt construction jobs, sold real estate, worked 7-Eleven graveyard, and more. I've written for national magazines and been a writer all my life, but the thing that has given me the most pleasure is building guitars and playing them. It is incredibly satisfying to play an instrument that you built yourself! You should hear the Brazilian Rosewood/Coastal Redwood kit I just finished. It is sublime ... yours can be, too!
