StewMac originally printed a series of guitar construction articles in their catalogs back in 2000. Author of this article, Al Rorick, is part of the R&D team here at StewMac and enjoys building one of a kind instruments.

"I have built a number of one-time-only instruments (called "one-offs" in the trade). This green guitar was inspired by this late '20s wood-bodied, yellow National Triolian. I came up with some short cuts that made it less expensive and easier to build, without sacrificing sound."

Al breaks the assembly process down into three steps:
Part One: Constructing the Body
Part Two: Making the neck
Part Three: Final assembly
