Accurate CNC-machined clear acrylic templates to accompany John Bogdanovich's book Classical Guitar Making and DVD set Making a Concert Classical Guitar. This time-saving set includes templates for the plantilla (body profile) and bridge plate, plus thicker templates for easily routing the headstock and fingerboard.
Trying to construct a guitar without accurate templates is an invitation for trouble. These templates are sized for building a nylon-string concert guitar, and are CNC-machined for accuracy. They're made of sturdy transparent acrylic to allow easy visual orientation on the woodgrain. Scribed centerlines assure accurate positioning.
Classical Guitar Templates includes:
• Plantilla template (body profile)
Use this template to create symmetrical molds and fixtures for assembling the guitar. The .110" thick
transparent acrylic allows easy visual orientation on the woodgrain and for laying out the soundboard
and back. Registration holes match corresponding holes in the fingerboard template, a handy feature
for accurate alignment during construction.
• Bridge plate template
Includes registration holes that match those in the plantilla template, for precise positioning. Template
