In recent years I’ve spent a fair bit of time travelling around Asia, and some of that time has been spent tapping away at an ipad about the one subject I know a fair bit about – making musical instruments.
If you click on the titles you’ll be taken to another site of mine (especially for luthiers) to find out more…
A practical guide to running your own shop, a guide to dealing with some of the common pitfalls that beset luthiers.
156 pages. Comes as a pdf.
I could do with reading myself from time to time…
The Luthier blog ran for about a year and LOADS of top makers contributed to it. The posts cover all manner of topics from giving guitars away(?) to dealing with your first customer. A great read if you’re interested in making or repairing musical instruments.
234 pages, comes as a pdf.
Dave Best took the photographs and I write/rant about instrument design. Not many left, and a beautiful book with lots of great pictures to drool over.
136 pages, and is an actual book. A real one. Soft bound and high quality.
