Goal: to build a classical guitar with an amateur electric guitar luthier friend. He has a CNC so our approach will be to utilize that tool as much as possible. I'm starting with modeling the cut pattern for top and back in CAD software. He is more experienced than I and will assist with 3D modeling of a neck. We will make a neck blank with the typical 13-15 degree head angle, then cut it out on the CNC.
I'm sure we will produce a guitar rivaling Ruck's or Gore's work on our first try!
In reality, I'm only hoping for something playable with decent tone. If we reach that minimal achievement, we will give it away to a student in need at our local music academy, because let's face, he and I both have world class guitars and our collections will not be improved by our own amateur work!
