Building an Electric Archtop Guitar details the step-by-step making of an electric archtop guitar. All aspects of the construction are covered, from the initial design stage to the very final setup. The text is supported by over 300 high-resolution color photographs positioned throughout the 15 chapters of the book.

J. P. Laplante has been building custom guitars for more than 15 years, offering serious amateurs and professional musicians hand-crafted alternatives to high-end mass-produced instruments. Each of his creations is a one of a kind, and whether it is an archtop, a flattop or a solid-body guitar, the fullest attention is paid to every detail of the construction. This results in instruments that are not only esthetically distinctive, but also well balanced in tone over all registers.
