Roy Courtnall made his first guitar under the supervision of his great-grandfather when he was twelve years old. After obtaining a BA (Hons) degree in Sculpture from London University he became more involved in making lutes and guitars. He 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.
