Wire, wire, and more wire.

You would expect a dog-eared copy of this book to be amongst the desk debris of any self respecting guitar tinkerer.It is a book produced as a result of years of experience. It's like a well designed hand-tool.

Basic, not pretty, but if you can't find it in here, then it don't work. Refreshingly devoid of current voodoo Caps, pots and carbon resistor mojo rants! (most caps cost between 22c and $3, except on the net, where they cost $7-$40!for 'special guitar circuit caps', but of course, YOU can hear the difference, even if they are all the same.)I read it in bed. Lots of "that's how they did it! moments.Buy one. Start dog-earing your diagrams, then the ones you would like to try. You know you want to!

Great book

This book is awesome. Great, easy to read diagrams of some really cool wirings. My only problem with it is there are a few active diagrams here that just say "circuit board." I would have liked to see a circuit board diagram, or even a tip how to build it, or where to get one. Same goes for the transformers on the ampeg diagram. Other than that, this book is awesome and extremely helpful

A culmination of The Book of Standard Wiring Diagrams Vol. 1 & 2. Everything you need to wire up just about anything you can think of.
