Wow!!

By

Verified Buyer


Being a guitar player of MANY years, but never one to get too into the mechanics of the instrument itself, I was blown away by this guide. So much information, easy to read, it really brakes down the many perceptions I had of the "voodoo" surrounding guitar maintenance and repair. I contains more information than I'll probably ever use, but y'never know.

Thanks for a great tool!

Required Reading

By

Verified Buyer


Every guitar player should own and read this book. Even if you never plan on opening your own shop, there is so much good information for maintenance, repair, and upgrades that this should be required reading. Especially for those of you who play every weekend and do your own maintenance and setup, because, like me, you don't have your own guitar tech yet. This book will pay for itself if you only avoid the repair shop once.

I have a new shop in a new area so I used stuff off the DVD straight away. I got a new Dan book signed. What else do I need apart from customers, but they'll stop me from reading the EXCELLENT book

Seems like there is always something I need refer to or a problem to solve and it's amazing how much information this book contains.

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

By

Verified Buyer


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.
