3.0 out of 5 stars half and half, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Electric Guitar Sourcebook: How to Find the Sounds You Like (Paperback)
The book has about two half, one a bit of talk about the guitars, and the other whos who of some of the different types. (sorry just checked the page numbers book has 203 pages (some blank pages) but 010-055 is about the bits within a guitar and 058-203 is about whos who of guitars (ie the woods, Bits, and makers etc)

The First half talks about woods, pickups (what i did like reading), Tremelo's (also good but small) Electronics (not even a page)

My feeling (note this is ME ONLY) that you would be better off with some kind of Building/Repairing Guitars book and a Whos Who than this one book that tries to mix the two.

Giving it 3 stars (the writing was great) but i felt the books title let it down for the subject inside. When the writer was talking about the parts of the guitar they had a very human part to them and felt like someone was talking to you than just blurtin bits at you.
As for the CD 64 Tracks of Rifts showin (well sounding) some of the guitars (Note list is found at back from 201-203) {what i guess is a PLUS for this book and i dont think ive seen else were)
