Guitar player repair guide

Have not had time to go through it all, but from the first part - Care of your instruments - is, in my humble opinion, worth every cent. Am anxious to read through this guide.

Great Book

No more paying a guitar store to do simple repairs for my guitars. For the price of 1 simple set up or repair you can buy this book and do them all yourself. I have used this book to do repairs to all mine and my frineds guitars. Set ups, fret jobs, nut jobs, saddle and bridge jobs, even fixed a finsih. Great Book.
