This DVD box set not only takes the viewer through every part of fabricating the instrument, but includes making the mold, backing board and solera. What sets this collection of instructional discs apart from others I ve seen is the author taking the time to show the making and machining of everything in the guitar. A lot of the operations are by hand, and John S. Bogdanovich also shows the jigs, fixtures and setups necessary in getting from rough stock to finished piece. A lot of instructional sets I ve seen accomplish fabrication off-camera and then show working with the finished parts, without really explaining the whole story of how they re made by showing it. John Bogdanovich narrates as he s working, and has a clear and pleasant presentation.
