How to Make an Acoustic Guiter
In How to Make an Acoustic Guitar Part Thirty Two, I’ll show you how to attach the neck. This is a fun part of the process, because the guitar goes from being in two pieces, to being in one piece.
Up until now, the guitar has been in two main pieces. Those being the neck and the body. It’s easier to build like this, and it’s a good strategy up to the point where the finished pieces have to be made into one.
This can be a stressful part of the process, but I’ll make it easy for you.
