The Steel String Guitar: Construction & Repair

The Steel String Guitar: Construction & Repair


Hardcover with dust jacket, tan cloth with navy spine titles, 18 by 26.5 cm, xix 158 pp., well-illustrated with black and white photos and drawings. Very good with light wear to the lower corners and spine ends; the jacket is good with edge wear and several tears – some with old tape repairs. No writing, highlighting, names, or other markings. The dust jacket is in a fresh mylar cover. “To give you a solid foundation in the fine craft of handbuilding an instrument, [Young] shows you how to construct, step-by-step, one specific steel string guitar, rather than inundate you with numerous subtle alternatives. He teaches a single, proven method-a method which he formulated during the construction of his own hundred-plus guitars. Superb photographs go hand-in-hand with the text to detail minute stages of construction as well as to provide the needed overviews of the building process.” We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags. Bay Leaf Books (Member ABAA, ILAB) is dedicated to offering fine books for discriminating readers. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
