4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better 12 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a useful introduction to electric guitar wiring, but has one flaw in my opinion. The wiring diagrams are more pictoral than schematic which is probably not a bad thing for beginners so no gripes there...but the diagrams are in black and white. This means all the wires are in varing shades of grey so tracing which wire goes where on some of the more complex layouts becomes quite challenging. There is a pdf link at the back of the book for a colour version download which kind of defeats the object of owning this as a hard copy.

This book, understanding wiring is, a must for begineers.
It has loads of really useful photo's, but even better than that are wiring digrams that are easy to understand,as you don't need to understand electronics to read them.
There are very good sections explaining what certain components are,how they work and how to wire them.
Follow the instructions carefully and i'm sure you can't go wrong.

The hardest bit is mastering the use of soldering irons.

There are so many ways to mod your guitar, but this book would be a good start.
Read other reviews, but i can definately recommend this book as i'm now on my fourth pick assembly and modification.

2.0 out of 5 stars good, but very limited 9 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book tells you the bare minimum and you need to pay a lot of money to get it. There are far better books on Amazon and all of the information is also available on the internet. All this would be forgiveable if the author had made an effort to actually write something of value, engage the reader or simply to connect the chapters. I read this on Kindle and it may be that my comments do not apply to the hard copy - Kindle formatting seems very strange. sorry - there is so much exciting to write about this topic and this seems like a missed opportunity (and the wrong price)
