I recently purchased the Dreadnought guitar plan from stew mac.
Its awesome! Full scale, and every wood part has a size and shape. This is my first
Acoustic guitar project, and its coming out great! Im very happy with the plans.

Guitar, mandolin, banjo plans are great.

Glad I bought them. Will be setting up my gazebo when the weather becomes warmer and have an instrument making session with a couple of friends. Just hope our Canadian summer comes soon.
Thank you for the promptness getting them to me. The manual seems to be very clear, so I think we will have a lot of fun with them. Will probably have them memorized by then.

Great plans — could use separate sheets

By

Verified Buyer


These plans are a perfect reference for my builds. It would be cool if you could include a separate page as a body cutout template because it’s kind of a pain to trace off of this large sheet. Otherwise, everything is there, and these planse are a great go-to for building a great guitar.

The plans are ok but...

By

Verified Buyer


I could build a guitar from them but they are sparse in dimensions. Yes they have full sized drawings that can be cut and used for templates but I would have preferred not to have to measure the drawing and just look at the dimensions. Sorry if that seems picky but I am a former mechanical engineer and expect all dimensions on the plan.

Acoustic Guitars are complicated

By

Verified Buyer


I've made electric guitars and basses, for which the most difficult part of the process is choosing which pickups to use, (StewMac has a wealth of resources online which cover every aspect of the construction).
Acoustic guitars require a whole nother level of info for you to be able to produce a fine sounding, "living" instrument. There's a big difference between that and a dead chunk of wood. In other words you need a plan with all the bits of info, like thicknesses, angles measurements, and methods. This plan is the most comprehensive and compact blueprint I've found.
