Simply a good read

Although not "fully" detailed on "everything" regarding guitars the details that are included make this a fantastic reference and an enjoyable read.

Being a guitar player of MANY years, but never one to get too into the mechanics of the instrument itself, I was blown away by this guide. So much information, easy to read, it really brakes down the many perceptions I had of the "voodoo" surrounding guitar maintenance and repair. I contains more information than I'll probably ever use, but y'never know.
Thanks for a great tool!

Required Reading

Every guitar player should own and read this book. Even if you never plan on opening your own shop, there is so much good information for maintenance, repair, and upgrades that this should be required reading. Especially for those of you who play every weekend and do your own maintenance and setup, because, like me, you don't have your own guitar tech yet. This book will pay for itself if you only avoid the repair shop once.

all that I needed

I have a new shop in a new area so I used stuff off the DVD straight away. I got a new Dan book signed. What else do I need apart from customers, but they'll stop me from reading the EXCELLENT book

I've had this publication on my bench since it's release and I wouldn't be without it.
Seems like there is always something I need refer to or a problem to solve and it's amazing how much information this book contains.
Thanks Dan!

Great information, this is a must have have for any guitar nut. It wasn't suppose to arrive before Christmas but to my surprise it did. Also, it was signed by Mr. Erlemine, VERY COOL!!

An Absolutely -=*MUST*=- Own!!

Hands down, the most comprehensive repair book there is in my humble opinion! The information, details, tips, tricks, and pictures are indispensable and completely invaluable!! I just began to fix and tinker with my own guitars and this book has saved me in a number of situations. Buy this book!
