Customizing, upgrading, "hot rodding", and even building an electric guitar from the ground up is something many musicians aspire to, but there has never been a single resource that addresses how to actually do it all â€“ until now
GUITAR MODS AND CUSTOMIZATION: PUT TOGETHER THE ULTIMATE GUITAR offers a comprehensive guide to building guitars, whether you are customizing an existing one or building a new one. The book makes this exciting process simple by discussing techniques that are easy for anyone to do, hand tools that are easy to find, and parts that are readily available and inexpensive. It begins with Part I, which is devoted to the modification of an existing instrument, with chapters that go into detail on the various parts that can be modified and upgraded. The second half of the book is dedicated to constructing a "partscaster", or a custom guitar built using commercially available parts. Coverage in this section focuses on selecting the best woods and parts, choosing the hardware and electronics, and then on the assembly, finishing, and finishing touches. Extremely reader-friendly and practical, this is a must-have resource for any musician, which will inspire, entertain, and inform.
