This book consists of a complete method for the construction of guitars, made with rigor and clarity, where the author combines excellent manufacturing knowledge and the quality of knowing how to transmit them easily.
Chacón, with a clear pedagogical vocation, expresses all his experience in this manual in which he describes, step by step, the complete process of manufacturing a Spanish guitar, using photographs, sketches and limited plans to expand the information.
All his knowledge and the processes are explained in a practical, efficient and easily way, very interpretable by the reader. La Guitarra en la Luthería describes in detail all the processes of the construction of guitars: from the selection of wood as a raw material and its treatment, to the construction method and the final application of varnishes and finishes.
In addition, the manual has a chapter in which he describes tools and elements needed for luthiers. Finally, he ends with a description of a second and more traditional constructive method for making guitars, apart from that described by Chacón in all the book.
