Description:

This is my 11-string alto guitar made from scrap woods.  This was a very challenging winter project and I am so relieved to have finished it.  I started with a Clifton full-size classical guitar, which can be purchased very cheaply from amazon warehouse deals.   It’s actually a rebranded Valesca guitar.  It is very poorly constructed and therefore easy to take apart.  For example, the neck was attached by some dowel pins.  After removing the neck and top, I made the neck, top, fretboard and bridge from scrap wood I had lying around.  The neck is beech wood and much harder to work with than mahogany, but I don’t want to use exotic woods for the learning process.  The fretboard is oak dyed with a solution of vinegar and rusty nails.  The top is thin plywood and has simple fan bracing.  I cut the heal slots to offset the neck angle slightly.  I find a straight neck is uncomfortable to play.  I copied this idea from the Dresden guitar.
