Jon Natelson and I first produced GT&T—the first comprehensive guitar-making manual in print—two and a half decades ago. It has since become the standard world reference for our industry. The book has been in continuous print now for almost thirty years and sold over 80,000 copies.


Praised by C.F. Martin IV as "the bible of the craft," GT&T has found its way into the bookshelves of guitar- and guitar-making enthusiasts all around the world and kick-started the careers of dozens of aspiring guitarmaking artisans. Indeed, we received notice that GT&T has been used as a basic reference for guitar-making factories in Vietnam, Japan and China for years!
