Steel String Guitar Voicing and Tuning Most guitar builders know how to build a guitar that holds up structurally. Many know how to build an esthetically beautiful gutar. Very few understand the principles involved in consistently building exceptional tone into their instruments. This class explores the fundamentals of wood selection, and demonstrates how to voice and tune these select tops and backs for the best responsiveness and tone. Please visit this page for details.
