Is this a book of self promotion? Or is the author genuinely interested in sharing his knowledge of archtop construction?
I enjoyed the book, but have many questions left unanswered. The author spends too much time settling issues that are of little interest or scientific value (such as the effect of the tail piece on string tension), but seems to gloss over areas where the inexperienced luthier needs most help (the theory and practice of tap tuning). I find it surprising that this book actively promotes itself as a guide to tap tuning when the info on this subject is barely touched on. He also offers very little on neck angle, bracing patterns, headstock angle, etc.
The archtop guitar is a very 'young' instrument (only about 100 years old) created based on the theories behind violin construction. I was interested in this author since he is also a violin maker, and expected him to take the trove of knowleged behind violin construction that's been developed over centuries of tradition and apply it to this new instrument. He failed to do that completely.
This book disappointed me. But I did enjoy the pictures. No one can argue that Benedetto makes beautiful guitars, and numerous pix testify to this fact.
On the plus side I am glad to finally see in print someone argueing against the use of the typical screw adjustable saddle and bridge. I've always thought that to be weakest feature of the archtop design.
This book is NOT for someone who wishes to seriously study archtop guitar design and construction. Although if you have built guitars before then this book has enough for you to make an archtop.

I don't know who charliem thinks he is, but on the subject of making archtop guitars (amongst others), Benedetto's book is the most informative of it's kind. As far as not giving enough info. goes, there is everything one needs to know from go to whoa. If he doesn't spell it out then it can either be worked out with a little basic math. or it doesn't effect the overall outcome. It is the best book on archtop guitars and should be in every collection.

I almost didn't get the book because of the last review by the man who felt the book should have taught him how to tap tune a top. I am affraid in this generation we expect to get it all from books where once we could only learn by sitting at the masters feet. So far I have found alot of help in this book and I recommend it to anyone interested in learning to make a guitar

Ich habe schon diverse Bücher zum Thema Gitarrenbau.

Da Benedetto ja wahrlich eine Größe in diesem Bereich ist, hatte ich mir etwas mehr versprochen.
Im Grunde ist es ein Standardwerk ohne nennenswert neue Erkenntnisse. Die vorgestellten Techniken, Arbeitsschritte und "Insider-Tipps" sind hinlänglich bekannt.
Jeder der schon ein wenig Erfahrung im Gitarrenbau hat, dürfte damit kaum mehr oder besser bauen.
Ich werde es wahrscheinlich wieder weiterverkaufen.

As an archtop owner and player for nearly thirty years, I would call this book a must read for anyone who is interested in purchasing a vintage archtop or buying a new one. Benedetto leads the reader into a deep appreciation of the painstaking detail that goes into The Making of an Archtop. He describes the level of attention that should be evident on each component of the guitar, and how it effects the player (and the price) in the end. The significance of learning the process of material selection, construction sequencing and design considerations might well lead the reader towards a custom made instrument. This book is a credit to all the independent luthiers out there whose trade is no longer a secret.

I agree that this book is not for someone who is interested in seriously studying archtop design and construction. But It's a GREAT book for someone with a little experience under their belt, who wants to try something different. If you want to become the next "Greatest American Luthier", find a good mentor and apprentice yourself to him/her. If you want to build an archtop, this book is a comprehensive guide that will get you there.

hat geklappt. Meine Archtop klingt super dank Benedettos Buch. Einzig beim fräsen des dovetail wo der Hals an den Korpus angebaut wird sollte sich der Anfänger die Hilfe eines Gitarrenbauers holen. Tolles Buch mit praktischen Tipps und eine no-nonsense Anleitung
