Luthier’s literature for sale

I’ve been having a bit of a sort out and have the following items of “luthier’s literature” that I’d like to sell.

Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument (Hardcover) by Allen St.John

Hardback edition in very good condition only read once. The story of luthier Wayne Henderson building a guitar for Eric Clapton. Price £7:00

Classical Guitar Making by Arthur E. Overholtzer

Used, 1983 soft cover copy of Overholtzer’s idiosyncratic guide to making a classical guitar; some interesting jigs and fixtures described. Every luthier should read this once! Price £7:00

Ukulele Design and Construction by D. Henry Wickham

Spiral bound in very good condition; a comprehensive guide to building a uke. Price £10:00

DVD French polishing for guitarmakers version 2.0

Excellent step by step guide to French polishing by Ronald Louis Fernadez; I’ve learnt a lot from this! Price £12:00

StewMac Resonator plans both round neck (biscuit) and square neck (spider) versions.


I bought both sets because I made a round neck with a spider resonator! They’ve yellowed with age; I think this is because they’re blue-print style. Price £5:00 each.

The above prices don’t include postage (the Clapton book is heavy!) but I’ll give you a quote, if you want to buy one or more items. You can get my email address from my website.

Here's the resonator that I built! (not for sale!)

PS the next parlour guitar video is up

If you still have Classical Guitar Making by Arthur E. Overholtzer, I'd be interested in buying it from you if shipping isn't too much. I live in the US - Madison Wisconsin. You can email me at: davidabiggs (at) hotmail (dot) com
