Left-Brain Lutherie. This is not a step-by-step manual for making an ukulele or guitar from beginning to end. Please don't buy this book if that's the only kind of information that you're looking for. This book is about trying to understand more about physics and engineering concepts as they are actually applied to instrument building. If you have already built several instruments and want more consistency, better mechanical stability and a deeper understanding of the effects of string load on your instrument and many other subjects as well , this is the book for you. I believe that if you take the time to read and think about the information herein and practice using the spreadsheets to understand more about your wood and building, that you will be considerably more consistent with respect to the type of sound you wish to achieve and the long-term stability of the instrument as well.

Write a customer review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Hurd makes a complex subject easy to understand for teacher and student alike. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to look beyond the standard building techniques and come to an understanding of why some acoustic guitar family of instruments have great tone and others do not.
Its a fascinating book that is well written and understandable for the layman. Unfortunately priced higher than any similar book I Very helpful manual. Obviously, a labor of love. Unfortunately priced higher than any similar book I have seen. The Friends of the Library in NM were easy to work with and got the book to me quickly.
I would recommend them as a place from which to purchase other books. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
