Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
I wrote the first “Wood Sweat and Tears” in 2013, and every year there has been more to add. Another printed book would be huge, and expensive. But - here it is.
Wood Sweat and Tears (Extended ... Again)
This is the third attempt at writing down my own history of guitar making. Lots has happened since the “extended” edition of this book was published, plus we have made more guitars, met new players and of course, bought more wood. There is a lot more to say.
My path is sometimes different to other makers and for the first time this book begins to explain the way we work here at Fylde, with rather more information about the tools and techniques involved than I’ve ever explained before. We are approaching 10,000 instruments now, and I am conscious of time passing but I’m still thinking and developing and I’ve no plans to stop!
