Re: Flamenco build details from the book

Your blog mentions no fingerboard tapering? You're talking about tapering of the sides of the blank or thickness...hard to tell from the photos. Yes, the sides (the width) are tapered all the way from the nut to the sound hole, but the thickness (depth) is constant. I was trying to avoid tapering t...

Re: Flamenco build details from the book

Looks great Joss. What did you weight come in at? Also do you have any FRC we can look at? Thank you. It weighs 1143g. Getting down to around 1100g was one of my main design goals, after reading the Gore/Gilet books. There's some tap tone data here: http://josswinn.org/2018/09/29/my-flamenco-guitar...

Re: Flamenco build details from the book

Just to say that I've finished making my flamenco guitar and there's a write-up on my blog . Thanks for the advice here and in the book. It was a great help and I'm pleased with the way it sounds. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/928/43796826392_89316db7f2_h.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1974/299...

Re: Data for a Smallman guitar?

Thanks, both, for all those references. I ordered all 7 BRBs from GAL a couple of weeks ago, so I guess they will arrive soon.

Data for a Smallman guitar?

I'm really enjoying the design book, even though I don't understand the maths. There are some very useful summaries of the consequences of the science in relation to material and design choices. Because it's so interesting, one thing I keep wishing I could see is some data from a Smallman guitar bec...

Re: Flamenco build details from the book

Thanks, Simonm. I hadn't thought about a three piece back but like the idea of it. Apparently, it's not easy finding top quality cypress these days. I spoke with, and ordered from, a major supplier of tonewood in the UK and he lamented that the really good stuff seems like a thing of the past. None ...

Re: Flamenco build details from the book

Thanks very much. I hadn't given the dome or neck angle much thought so far, so thanks for that. Yes, rosewood fretboard seems the way to go.

Flamenco build details from the book

Hello, this is my first post to this forum. I've just finished my first guitar , having learned with Roy Courtnall. It was a lattice of his design. For my second guitar, I want to build a Flamenco Blanca, applying what I can from my new Gore/Gilet books, as well as what I learned from Roy. I've foun...
