Where to find Enrique Garcia / Francisco Simplicio plans?

Post by kramer733 » Mon Jan 09, 2017 5:14 am

Does anybody know where I could purchase a plan based off a guitar made by either of these luthiers?

Please and thank you.

In the book of Luca Waldner La Chitarra di Liuteria -Masterpieces of Guitar Making, there is a simplified plan of the asymmetric Francisco Simplicio/ Enrique Garcia 8 fan brace. I think John Ray had also a Enrique Garcia plan published on his blog Great Guitars Of The Past. Simplicio followed the bracing pattern established by Enrique Garcia, so you can get some ideas from that plan.
