what do you guys rate "Make Your Own Electric Guitar" by Melvyn Hiscock? is it a pretty good book? is there a better book than that?
I've heard that was the best guitar building book from many people. Personally, for electrics I bought one book (Koch ebook) barely looked at it before my computer crashed, and it was lost forever. To build my first I just asked a lot of questions on forums, planned it out, and built. If you don't have any wood working experience you'll need a book though.
Read it. I learnt all that of the net.
