Construction Of A Guitar
The wood used for the top of the guitar is a cut from a lumber using a process called book matching. Book matching is a method that processed by which a single piece of wood is sliced into two sheets of each of the same length and width as the original but only half as thickness is used. The two sheets are very perfectly matched to ensure continuity in the grains and glued together. Once dry the newly joined boards are sanded to the proper thickness to make the instrument.
They are very closely inspected for the quality and then they graded according to the color, closeness and regularity of grain, and lack of blemishes of the instrument. The wood braces are just next glued to the underside of the top piece of the instrument. Strutting with this as this process is often called serves two purposes brace the wood against the pull of the strings and control the way to the top vibrates automatically. An area of the guitar construction that differs from company to company in that has the strutting has a great effect on the guitar’s tone as well.
The back side is although not as acoustically important as the top of the instrument is still critical to the guitar’s sound. A reflector is used to the sound waves the back is also braced with the instrument but its strips of the wood run parallel from the left to the right side with one cross grained strip running down towards the length of the back’s glue joint of the guitar.
