Beyond Essential

Impossible Without! A friend said "Get It" and this book's WAY more than I ever imagined. Dan's got a gift from the real "Guitar God" & his ability to share the gift amazes me. The only way you won't be more than satisfied with this book is if you can't read!

Erlewine's Tome Belongs in Every Guitarist's Library

This is the greatest investment that any guitarist can possibly make. It is a required reference tool for any and every one that owns an electric or acoustic guitar. In addition, Dan Erlewine is a world-class authority with a friendly, unaffected, and practical writing style: a great teacher that does not 'skip steps' in his patient and thoughtful approach to the reader. My copy was signed by Dan with a personalized and inspirational touch.

Just in time

By the time I received the book my daughter bought a fairly used bass, but with many issues. Then I started to read/use the very good book and doing the job for her. And with Dan's autograph....what else?

Wonderful resource !!!!

This book is thorough, complete and detailed. It is easy to read and follow. I have been doing wood working for 53 years and this is one of the best instructional books I've seen

Great Resource

I'm a long time player and an avid woodworker who is planning on building instruments in the future. This manual is a must for not only a player but anyone who will be doing setup or repair work. Players need it if for nothing less than to help you learn how to do the simple stuff and save money for the big repairs later!
