guitar Sets

The first decision to make when building a guitar is what size to build. From largest to smallest, we supply western, classical and parlor acoustic guitar sets. We also supply tops for electric guitars.

 
 

Western Guitars

Our Western templates allow for at least the dimensions below of good wood that is free from rot or cracks. Small pin-knots that are sound and/or mineral staining may be included within the templated area on some sets. Sets with these slight imperfections still make beautiful looking and sounding guitars and are typically discounted. Sapwood is typically excluded from the templated area, however if any falls within the chalk line it is guaranteed to be solid and just as dense as the heartwood. There are many beautifully crafted guitars that include spalted sapwood in their design.

  • Side - 5.25" x 33.5" (130 mm x 850 mm)
