Plans for Guitar Making                 

These are detailed, full size plans / working drawings / blueprints of guitars by famous makers. Each plan is accurately drawn, and is based on a careful examination of the instrument concerned. They include all information needed to build a reproduction. Scale lengths are all 650 mm unless otherwise stated.

Plans 1 to 9 are based on the drawings that appear in the book; Making Master Guitars which is a complete step-by-step guide to building guitars.

PDF Plans:

 All the plans  are  available as PDF files, which you can view on your computer and print out full size if you wish. These are the identical files I print paper copies from. Most Print & Copy Shops can print PDF files on their plan printer machine on all paper sizes. When I receive your order, I will email the plans to you, usually within a few hours.

** Please note: Plans are posted First Class Royal Mail to UK destinations. For other countries, Royal Mail Airmail is used - this can take from one week to three weeks in some cases. I guarantee to make sure you receive your plans; in the unlikely event that they do not arrive, I will send you replacement plans free of charge if they do not arrive after 15 working days (UK addresses). For European countries, I will send replacements if the plans fail to arrive after 20 working days; for countries outside Europe this will be 25 working days.

However, if you want the plans to arrive extra fast and with greater security, I can use either Royal Mail Airsureฎ or Royal Mail International Signed For™ ; depending on which country you are in. This costs 10.00 GBP extra.
