This is the bible for people interested in building guitars (archtop or other) or anyone just plain curious about how guitars are put together. I'll probably never build a guitar (I failed shop and I can't even make a birdhouse) but this book is really a lot of fun to read and peruse. Benedetto is considered to be the premier luthier in the world today and once you see the pictures in this book, you'll probably agree. Bon appetit.
Suitable for all skill levels of guitarists
