OK, so you have probably discussed this book a million times before I came onboard but I can't find any discussions on it at the moment beyond the occasional reference to it. Point is, I am looking to buy it and wondered what your thoughts were.

I need to tick as many of the following boxes as possible. Cover steel string and classical guitar anatomy. I also want something that is going to give me a touch on the science of making guitars. What happens when the soundboard is too thick for example? What happens when you thin it? Will this book do it?

I am asking becasue over here in the UK it will set me back 70. I believe that is around $110. Not exactly cheep and I dont want to spend money on a book that isn't going to do what I want it to do.

I know and agree with Bill Cory's statement before that no book is the 'Bible' on guitar making (hope you don't mind me quoting you Bill) but if this is a book that a serious guitar maker should not be without and I want to be a serious guitar maker, then I need this book.

looking forward to your thoughts.

Wish I could offer some insight, but I don't have that one.

If you are in that price range, however, it might be a good idea to check out Ervin Samogyi's books & videos ( http://www.esomogyi.com ). I haven't read or seen them either, but I have heard that they are excellent. Unfortunately, the fine points in them are beyond my skill level.

Looking on LMI's website, and one other, it seems this discusses the Spanish-style guitar, which I assume is Classical. Neither description mentioned steel string. I'd do a google search on reviews of the book first.

Paul, they say Cumpiano's book, Guitarmaking: Tradition and Technology is a very good one. You might look at it. It's also cheaper than the one you talk about.
I used Bill Cory's book almost exclusively for my first build, but you might check with him to see if he has anything dealing with Classical guitarmaking.

Paul, if you're interested, I have an extra copy of Somogyi's "Making the Responsive Guitar" - I got two of them for a present.
Drop me a line if you like, you can buy this one for $60.00.

Dave: strangly enough my wife has agreed to buy that one for my birthday so it is on it's way so to speak ... or soon will be. Thanks for the offer though.

Bob: I have just odered Cumpianos and Siminoff's Luthier's Handbook: Guide to Building Great Tone in Acoustic Stringed Instruments

Really looking forward to studying them both.

Dave--
I'd be interested in purchasing your extra copy if it's still available. I tried sending you an email but received a bounceback.

Herman - sorry, it's on it's way to Chuck as we speak.

The companion volume - The Responsive Guitar - which is the theory book, not the how to book - is available. It is a bit marked up but no dogears or coffee stains, still in very good shape - for $60 if anyone is interested. I've read it and made notes of things - many notes - that I needed to know.

Hey! I didn't know the companion book was available. I would have purchased the two together. I zipped an email off to Dave just now--but Herman, if you're interested, you can have first dibs on The Responsive Guitar.

Chuck, Thank you very much to be so generous to grant me the chance on the other book.

I told you so. Lots of kind people around here.
