Clean and well laid out.

(Customer's Reviews)

I like the book because it is simple to read for someone who is unfamiliar with blue prints. As a Electrical Engineer I didn't need this book as much as needing it for those who can't read a print. The best part is I can Xerox it and give it to one of my techs to use to check wiring on a particular guitar without the need to explain things. It is the K.I.S.S. principle in action (Keep it simple stupid). So it gets a 4 star from me, because it is simple and saves time and long explanations.


Excellent service

(Customer's Reviews)

As usual, excellent service from Stew-Mac. Book does not meet expectations because I thought it would include also special wiring. But useful if you want to make repairs.


All I needed and more!

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a great book, I've been able to find every wire job that I needed and it really helps me understand how wiring works. Highly recommended!
