Abstract

Why do guitars sound like they do, and how do you set about making one? These are central questions addressed by Richard French in this attractive new book. He is both an assistant professor of engineering and also a guitar builder and player, so that one could hardly imagine anybody better equipped to write a book with this wide coverage.
