Default Complete Small Body Slot Head 14 Fret Plan

I'm working on putting up my Small Body Slot Head 14 Fret Guitar plan for this guitar:



Here's a thumbnail view, the download link for the pdf is at the bottom of this post.





Feel free to save it, post it, or freely distribute it as you wish. The finished guitar is posted in the General section "NGD, DIY edition..." if you wish to see and/or hear it.

I may be biased, but it turned out really well with more bottom than I thought it would, and a really nice resonant quality. It's close to a Size 0, but with a slightly different profile and an increased depth.

If anyone wants further information relating to construction details then check out the photos here:

Be forewarned! I use some "outside the box" techniques that you might be surprised by. I assure you, they all work well. I've been building instruments for long enough that I do things in unconventional ways, but that's the way I've been rolling for 40 years of building musical instruments. Banjos have received the majority of my attention, but I'm not above the occasional guitar.

Here is the pdf plan:

Do you have a recording of it?

The important part is how does it sound.

The "NGD, DIY edition..." topic linked above has a video with audio captured by a Tascam DR-05 recorder.

Several videos done with this guitar are available on my Youtube channel:
