5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant All Rounder, 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the minute, I'm building my first electric guitar from scratch and this book was vital to my choice of parts and woods. Every part of the guitar is explained in detail; it's function and how it affects the tone/sound of the instrument. Dave lists the main types of woods and their qualities, the different models of bridges, bolt on necks, set necks, nuts... The list goes on. Even a bit of history of how and when parts were first used and engineered.

It is written in a really easy to read and understand style and I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking to familiarise themselves with the parts of a guitar and their functions. Anybody planning to build a guitar, anybody looking to purchase a guitar, anybody wanting to know more about their guitar, anybody interested in guitars in general... this book is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Button Holes Too Small, 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful strap. Really well made and a great looking celtic pattern on it. It seems very sturdy and is also adjustable.

However, I had to send mine back as I could not get the button holes over the strap buttons on my guitar. They are quite small. I did receive excellent customer service from Jake at Dangleberry Music when returning the item though.

It's a shame it didnt fit as I would have loved to use it!!


Macbeth The Graphic Novel: Original Text (Unabridged, British English)
Macbeth The Graphic Novel: Original Text (Unabridged, British English)
by John McDonald
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great introduction to the play.The illustrations are spectacular and the speech sticks to the original text.
When compared to the 'Plain Text' version, the same illustrations are used in the same order only with different text.
This is extremely useful when helping people or students compare and translate the original text with modern English.

Still a great read and an amazing visualisation of the play when used on it's own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, 22 Mar 2013

Excellent way to introduce students to the play. Great for differentiation.
The illustrations are amazing and the Original text to Plain text translations are really accessible.

The only reason I would give it 4 stars is that the final 50 or so pages are (for some reason) printed at the front of the book, and then repeated again in their correct place. Strange.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Cruise Is Amazing!, 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rock of Ages (DVD + UV Copy) (DVD)
I don't know how this wasn't and isn't more popular.
It's full of great versions of great songs. Some of these versions are better than the originals.
Tom Cruise is brilliant in it. Quite a good singer too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Takes A While To Get Going, 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great watch and does exactly what it says on the tin.
However, I have found that it takes quite a while to pick up your bpm. I am usually about 20 minutes into a workout when it starts recording data. Usually speeds up the process if you're arm is a bit sweaty before you put it on.

This review is from: Rock of Ages (MP3 Download)
Brilliant renditions of much loved 80s anthems. The arrangements are brilliant and some give a new meaning to the lyrics (such as when Foreigner's I Want To Know What Love Is is sang as a duet). The mash ups (mixing two songs together) are genius too, they blend perfectly. And who know Tom Cruise had a voice like that?!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought, 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure what I expected with this book. But it turned out to be a let down. It was literally a list of things that diabetics can eat. I suppose I was expecting meals, or things I could snack on. About 30 of the items were different varieties of nut and 20 or so herbs/spices. I wouldn't bother buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Handmade Music Factory (Paperback)
Of all of the books that I've read about the topic (quite a few), this one is by far the best. If you want to begin making your own instruments, then this is by far the best place to start. I bought it so I could learn how to make a decent cigar box guitar and the book explains how to do that with easy to follow instructions and detailed colour photographs. It also instructs you on how to make many other instruments, from a simple stomp box to a make shift double bass. Great book.
