Guitar Playing Manual
The comprehensive guide
By: Martin Hatwood

Extensively illustrated and written in down-to-earth language, this Haynes Manual is designed to take the novice guitar player through from first steps to confident, competent playing, but each chapter can also be read as a self-contained tutorial in its own right by those who already have some knowledge and skill. During the writing of this book, the author has recalled his own problems from his early playing days, some of which have taken many years and frustrations to resolve, and aimed to provide the reader with answers to many common stumbling blocks.

Build Your Own Electric Guitar brings the unique 'Build Your Own' approach to the celebrated 'S-type' electric guitar.

Tough economic times mean it has never been more tempting to put together your own individual guitar. Build Your Own Electric Guitar is an easy-to-use step-by-step guide that shows both novice and experienced guitarists how to build a tailor-made instrument for far less than the cost of a 'custom-built' equivalent.

Today, the internet offers unprecedented access to the world's best materials, though few of us have the specialist routing and shaping tools to start from scratch. Fully illustrated, Build Your Own Electric Guitar shows how to use good-quality pre-finished components (or a raw, unfinished neck and body if you have access to spraying facilities), together with suitable hardware to build your dream 'S'-type.

As well as offering his top tips and guidance on sourcing parts, author Paul Balmer has teamed up with expert luthiers John Diggins and Andrew Guyton, who between them have built guitars for Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, Mark King of Level 42, Roy Orbison and Brian May.

With a detailed look at four project guitars built especially for this book, and case studies on possibly the world's most celebrated homebuilt guitar - Brian May's 'Red Special' (see below) - as well as Bo Diddley's 'Cigar Box', Build Your Own Electric Guitar provides all the information necessary to create a unique instrument that is satisfying to build and play.

Brian May CBE - "The 'Red Special' I play was an experiment really... we built it because we couldn't afford 'a real one' and also it could be something no-one else had."
