Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Besides quality of production (its printed entirely on heavy paper stock and features full-color photos throughout), [the book] excels in the simplicity of its presentation: the instructions are logical and well detailed, and they promote use of common tools and easily acquired materials. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal.

Synopsis:

From light country to heavy metal to cool jazz, from r&b to rock 'n' roll, the electric guitar rules! Along with the percussive, driving bass, it transformed modern music and created new sonic landscapes. If you dream of being the next Eric Clapton and want a really personalized, top-quality instrument--or are a woodworker searching for a satisfying project--make one yourself. These well detailed instructions for building a standard 6-string solid body model guitar and bass emphasize simplicity and logic, use common tools and easy-to-order materials, and provide resources for obtaining electronic components and other hardware. Pictures and diagrams visualize and clarify every aspect of the construction: body shape, bridge types, neck and headstock, cutting and shaping, and assembly. Both traditional and modern features crop up here, making the finished product perfect for whatever musical style you like best--and with the advice on playing you'll be ready to tune up, plug in, and go!
