The Plywood Guitar Project


Here is Mr Pete preparing the router templates for the top wood. Note that they too are made from grade AAAAA+ (better than Master grade) plywood. If a lesser material were to be used for such an important template, the inferior tonal characteristics may be transferred into the top wood. This is to avoided at all costs. Also note that the workbench has been surfaced with a particularly expensive ply top sourced from the local B&Q store for similar reasons. This store is not to be mistaken for the national chain of hardware stores, but is indeed the local Bespoke & Quality trade outlet. Protective mask and ear defenders must be used at this early stage to prevent tonal attack to the eyes, face and ears.
