An Absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who plays Guitar,
This review is from: Guitar Player Repair Guide: How to Set Up, Maintain and Repair Electrics and Acoustics (Paperback)
I cannot praise this book enough. It unravels the mysteries of the "pro-setup" that a music store will charge you the earth for. Even if you never pluck up the courage to tinker with your axe, it will help you identify any problem yourself and make you able to communicate this to a repair shop. Even the most unscrupulous repairman will think twice about ripping you off, if he thinks you know what you talking about!!
The author is obviously up there with the best of the best and is more than willing to share the tricks of the trade that he has picked up over many years. He explains everything in a clear, concise and often entertaining manner and always tells you what you can tinker with without damaging your instrument and what could be risky!
The interviews with famous guitarists such as B.B and Albert King about their weapons of choice and their setups are well worth the asking price alone...and if you have a cheap guitar to build up your skills on, you may never have to put the love of your life into the shop again.
