This book was created because of the very large customer response from the "Tips and Tricks" section in my first book, Acoustic Guitar Making: How to Make Tools, Templtes, and Jigs, and it is a collection of 1,001 acoustic guitar making tips. Some of the tips that were scattered around the first book have been revisited, and many new tips have been introduced, all with the goal of giving the beginning guitar maker a good head start. If you have made a few guitars already, you most likely know most of these concepts, but that is the point. Having more information at the beginning will help new guitar makers complete their first or second build with confidence, and get them on the path to producing great guitars more quickly. Had I known what I know now on the day I started my first build, it would have come out much nicer than it did, and it would have sounded quite a bit better too. Making mistakes goes along with any new skill, but having more knowledge at the start can reduce the number and severity of those mistakes. My hope is that these 1,001 tips give beginning guitar makers the confidence and know-how to get the most out of their first couple builds, and have an enjoyable first experience with acoustic guitar making. Happy building.
