James Lister - Guitar Plans

Post by James Lister » Mon Dec 02, 2013 11:10 pm

Hi Folks,

A couple of years ago I decided that the Torres guitar plans the students were using at College could do with updating. There were a number of mistakes, and quite a few measurements missing. I'd recently started playing about with AutoCAD a bit, and thought I'd have a go at producing a more professional set of plans. There followed quite a steep learning curve, but after many months of work, I had a new set of plans for the Torres guitar that I was very pleased with.

It then occurred to me that it would be good to have a set of detailed plans for my own classical guitars, and after another 6 months or so of tinkering/correcting/modifying, I've finally produced a set of plans I'm happy with, and have decided to offer them for sale.

The plans are presented on three full scale A2 size pages. Drawing #1 includes construction notes, detail drawings of the head, bridge, rosette and heel/foot. Drawing #2 shows the full plantilla, and details of all bracing positions and dimensions. Drawing #3 shows the fingerboard and frets layout, side views of the head and heel/foot assembly, and a side section through the body of the guitar. The plans are also available as PDF files that you can print out yourself.

More details are available on my website - click the web link below my avatar, and then click on "Guitar Plans" - or just search "James Lister guitar plans".
