Still one of the best out there for the DIY guitarist

(Customer's Reviews)

I have the earlier version, and have made good use of it over the years. The new edition adds to it nicely. Very easy to follow and extremely helpful when I run into a problem with one of my guitars. Excellent and highly recommended


Excellent book

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this book knowing nothing about how to mod and maintain my guitars. This book is very helpful and will help me learn and not have to rely on others for maintenance and setups.


Excellent Reference Material

(Customer's Reviews)

Excellent Reference Material everyone that owns a guitar should have this.
