How to Build a Guitar

12 fret EIR Dred 1 7/8 in nut Torrified Red spruce top


This is a 1st quality kit from Blues Creek Guitars. It is based off the 12 fret D 28 The back and sides are trimmed , bent and contoured for a 12 fret Martin shape. The neck joint is Dovetail.
The back has a zigzag strip. The top is high quality Torrified Red Spruce . The top has the bracing laid out for you in the "original forward shifted position". The braces are Sitka spruce and are scalloped. The fretboard is Ebony as is the bridge. The nut width is 1 7/8 at the nut and 2 5/16 string spacing at the 12th fret and bridge. The bone nut and saddle blanks are included. Pick guard is also included.This is a long through saddle drop in.
The side supports are like the old guitar and are ribbon and need to be glued in under the kerfed linking. The back braces , also Sitka spruce are the old style. The head veneer is rosewood and I included Grover butterbean tuners. No inlay on the fretboard so you may do dots or what ever you wish. I did include the paua square and diamonds . The fretwire is also included. I have all parts down to the strings in the carton. This will have a 2 way adjustable truss rod. The binding is ivroid and herringbone purfling , the end wedge and heel cap are included.
The kit is serviced and ready to go. I suggest you also get the D12 mold to match this kit. I have a good bit of video on your tube for building and instruction. We do back all we sell so you will be able to get in touch when you need help. I want to see these finished and we take this very serious.
