Alrighty folks, here we have Version 1 of the GB&C Starter Pack! Please remember to read the Introduction document as well, it answers many smaller questions.

It's in three parts

Guitar Building, Repair, and Templates - http://rapidshare.com/files/271515356/Building__Repair__and_Templates.zip

Electronics - http://rapidshare.com/files/271527865/Electronics.zip

and Painting and Accessories - http://rapidshare.com/files/271538518/Painting_and_Electronics.zip

Jim, Jimmy, and Colin, if you would kindly leave the contribution thread open, then whenever anyone has something to add they can put it in there.


Hopefully this thread can be used to answer questions people may have regarding the tutorials and e-books in this pack.

Okay folks, apparently Rapidshare only allows 200 mb of download every 15 minutes, so just take two, then get the other one after, until I can find a better hosting site.

Sorry about this

Apparently I can only download one at a time, and if I try to download one right after the other it says I have exceeded my limit.

WTF!

I'm trying to upload to mediafire as a premanent link, Bobby. My internet connection's decided it doesn't want to allow me to upload files tonight, so I'll do it tomorrow.

Only d/l'd the first link you posted so far, but everything is working in it, but I cant figure out how to open Tremelo_routing template_dxf.dxf or tremelo_template_dxf, the latter which is a zip file, which was weird

Also, the notepad intro does not have all the same links as the word intro, it only has the SD wiring link, none others, but the word one has a lot more

You can download a free microsoft word 2007 trial until it gets changed to a DOC, or just buy word 2007 like I did. Its so much better

I know it is, the school has it.

Could you personally convert it for me and PM it to me?

Yeah, but I can't compress them at all.

Sorry to everyone with the problems so far, I'm working to convert the stuff to Notepad and get a GOOD hosting site.

I only downloaded the Electronics one so far, but it's great.

The second one with the Strat diagrams is good. I don't know what's happening, but I definitely have a better understanding.

I think there needs to be another part where it has all completely basic stuff like ground and hot.

Okay, Brock, I just got everything downloaded. I'd just like to say thank you to you and EVERYONE who contributed in any way to this undertaking. Thank you for the time that you guys have put into this, I know it will help others and most certainly myself with Modding/Repairing/Luthiery.

Long story short: thanks A LOT!

you can also go to the microsoft site and download a file converter that will conver 2007 Office docx to word 2000, 2003, etc. Once it is converted, you never need to worry about the trial period expiring.

OpenOffice also reads docx files, iirc.

Brock, I looked at the Morello tutorial.

Did you ever get the second PM I sent you which finished it?

What if I don't want to download everything all at once.

IMO each file which is in the starter pack should be for separate download. It would much help out people who have dial-up, a download limit or just don't want to download a whole heap of shit which they don't need.
#29
The way I see it, you can just delete what you don't need. It'll be a massive pain in the ass to upload each file seperately.

Copa, I did get the other half, but it was already uploaded. First update'll have it.

or you can 'pirate' it. Just look up office 2007 key and people list like a million (not that I did that ). *disclaimer: I think it's illegal, so do it at your own discretion.*

You won't get in trouble as long as you don't link to the actual file, which apparently you can't do.

I found that out and instead of being banned right now I'm here to make fun of myself for doing it Jim's awesome.


I'm anxiously awaiting the next update to read about the Morello guitar. Maybe I'll make that my first guitar I make instead of the one with the glow in the dark paint and LED lights.

You can delete it sure, but first you want to download it and you have dial up or a download limit it will either take forever or go over your limit. I think you should atleast split it up into smaller downloads. so that we don't have to download 100 things and have it take for ever or go over our limit when we only need one or two documents.

Next Update:

- Updated ATH tut from Copa
- Hopefully, some new ebooks on electronics
- All downloads will be broken up into their own categories
- Tutorials on paintjobs I've found around here.

Hopefully, I'll have the update up by Wednesday. If not, then it'll be a week or two. Going to university on Thursday so no work until after O-Week

What about the templates from Metal-Matt? Seems like it would be a good thing to include

Hey man, you should upload these to Mediafire.com. Far superior to Rapidshare.

Downloading now, btw.

it'd be awesome if you could include a copy of adrian legg's "customizing your electric guitar" to this since i cant seem to find my copy of the book. i'm sure it exists online somewhere if no one has a copy they'd be willing to scan.
