Hi, I am not new here but am a wannabe Guitar Maker. I am interested in making a Flaminco Guitar. My wife is a Jazz and Classical guitarist and would like a Flamenco, I am probably biting off more than I can chew but would appreciate any help I can get.

I have never built a flamingo guitar but there are many fine plans available, some can be found at Stewart McDonlad, their web site is stewmac.com. They offer some kits and dvd's which I would recomend. I attended a school of Luthiery for six months before I began building and all I can say is that building gutars is a lengthy and complicated series of procedures. You complete each piece as a seperate thing and then join them all together. Thats a simplified explanation. If you are a seasoned woodworker you can do it.

Nice to meet you grandpagrizzly. I have never built a Flamenco guitar either. You can find some decent plans on the enternet. One place that I use for my parts and supplies is Stewart McDonald. Their website is stewmac.com. They have plans as well as instuctional dvd's that I would strongly recomend. Building gutars is a complicated set of procedures involving many pieces. Each piece is like a puzzel that you must build to exact dimensions and at the end they come together perfectly to form a guitar. If you are a seasoned woodworker you can do it.

I also am new here Harkus, so Welcome! At some point, I would like to design and build some Dulcimers. More than likely, I'll chime in sooner or later.

Thanks Harkus, I have been to the Stew-Mac site and drooled over their entire line of tools and kits.
