Herringbone Guitar Plan

This is a very detailed plan which I have used quite regularly. I use it as the basic design for my dreadnoughts and just vary it slightly each time so each guitar is unique. My own preference would be for it to be provided rolled rather than folded. Mine started to tear along the folds after just a couple of times. I will have to buy another copy soon.

Why would you sell a poster sized item folded?

I have no complaints with the quality of the artwork on the guitar plan. The problem is that it was shipped folded instead of in a shipping tube so that there would be no creases in the print. I cannot think of anyone that would buy this poster sized print that was not thinking about putting it up on a wall. When I called customer service, the response was that it was stated in the description that the plan was shipped folded. When I went pack and checked, the ad did say it was shipped folded but I obviously did not see that when I bought it. I guess that I missed it cause I would have never expected for something of this type to be shipped folded. This fact needs to be bold-faced in the ad so that it does not happen to anyone else. If you are thinking about framing these plans beware that they will be creased.

It's all in the details

The Stew-Mac Dreadnaught Gutar Plans Are Easy to read, detailed and spot on. A great help for this newcomer to the building process.

Herringbone Dreadnought Plan

Great plan reasonable priced. Some of the dimensions are a little hard to find.
