Quick all around look at fixing common guitar and amp issues
on 17 March 1999
This is a very "to the point" "let's get it done" quick look at guitar and amp maintenance. The guitar section is great especially for novice users who may not be familiar with how to setup, clean and string guitars. How to remove pits, small scrapes and gashes. How to set intonation and bridge (even for archtops) Wiring diagrams for all common guitar models. The appendix includes common Tube names and substitutions and the has a description of how tubes work. How to work safely on a tube amp, draining caps, replacing tubes, microphonics, how to look for problems without killing yourself. Couple small sections on SolidState amps. Whole book is full of pictures. Good all around reference for the musician. May not be enough for the professional and/or amp builder.
