Mastering the Sound of the Acoustic Guitar

By Giuliano Nicoletti

Unlock the best sound of your acoustic guitar builds with Giuliano Nicoletti's comprehensive guide. Nicoletti explores how to shape the sound of acoustic guitars with a simple, repeatable method.

Take control of your tone
Nicoletti demonstrates how to first measure the sound and tone of an acoustic guitar, then how to refine and improve it throughout the build process. Each complex topic is discussed in a clear and approachable way. From choosing tonewoods to eliminating wolf notes, Nicoletti demystifies his entire process. 

The book also includes a complete package of downloadable calculations, simulation tools, and a database of the measurements that illustrates each step. It's the perfect guide for luthiers and repair shops to scientifically measure and optimize the sound of acoustic streel string and classical guitars.
