This book is an ideal choice for those contemplating building their first electric guitar. It is a very pictorial reference and displays the basic techniques of electric guitar construction in a way which is very easy to comprehend.
The author presents guitar-building in a progressive fashion, beginning by building a simple Stratocaster-style kit with a bolt-on neck and continuing on to a "relic'd" Telecaster-style build, then two Gibson-style set-neck models, and finally a custom double-neck mash-up.
The book also has chapters covering important issues including tools, timbers, electronics, hardware, finishing and setup.
