Product description

From the Back Cover

Most guitarists dream of building their own custom guitar. Fortunately, in recent years, the market for affordable electric guitar kits has exploded. Unfortunately, it seems like for every two builders, there are four opinions on how to properly execute each step in a successful build. In this new book, acclaimed builder Will Kelly ("Vintage Guitar" magazine and Hard Knocks Guitars) cuts through all the noise to show how, with a little patience and some relatively inexpensive tools, the average weekend enthusiast can turn a modest investment into a gig-worthy instrument and even a lifelong hobby. Leaning on his years of expertise and more than 500 photographs, Kelly presents the world of kit-built guitars in a sensible, progressive fashion, beginning with a simple bolt-on Strat-style kit and continuing on to a Tele-style guitar, a set-neck LP Junior-style model, and finally a custom double-neck mash-up. Because each build is more involved than the previous, the reader builds on his or her skill set, along the way acquiring only the tools necessary for their interest level. Readers also learn how to execute several finishes, including sunburst, color-shifting metalflake, and even "relic'd" effects--all applied with little more than "rattle-can" paints. Kelly also shows how to install hardware, cut nuts, wire controls and pickups, and set up the assembled guitar for proper action and intonation. The results are invaluable advice for both beginners and seasoned builders and instruments fit to hand down through the generations!
