ROY COURTNALL is a luthier, writer and lecturer in musical instrument technology. After obtaining a BA Hons degree in sculpture from London University he went on to develop his instrument-making skills, establishing himself as a luthier. He has published a collection of plans of musical instruments, and is now a self-employed guitar maker, producing handmade instruments to order.
Roy Courtnall has combined the detailed work of the scholar with the practical insights of the craftsman. The book has a wealth of beautiful photographs and clear illustrations, packing a massive amount of information into a concise forma. It is a delight for any guitar enthusiast - from player to maker.
Clearly written instructions, together with excellent drawings and photographs, have established Making Master Guitars as an essential teaching aid on our Classical Guitar Making Course.
