Make Your Own Electric Guitar has become the chosen reference for many guitar-makers and this new, fully revised and expanded third edition now contains even more useful information to help you realise that dream. Over 300 pages with photos and diagrams to guide you through your build.
With chapters on designing the guitar, choice of wood and tools, fretting, truss rods and electrics and with three fully illustrated projects detailing the many and varied methods used, this book is widely accepted as the definitive work on the subject.
Written by Melvyn Hiscock in a relaxed style which is both informative and interesting, it is ideally suited to the individual or student, guitar expert or novice and to anyone with more than a passing interest in the most influential instrument of the century.
"The book is a document of the hand-builder, the craftsperson that Melvyn was" - Guitarist review – Aug 2021
