does melvyn hiscock's book "make your own electric guitar" include how to setup a guitar and how to assemble or is it all about making one?
It has a chapter on setup and a chapter on assebly from parts, but it mostly deals with making your own.
so would getting a book about assembling a guitar better for a first time builder where i get the parts off the internet and make the first one like that and then come back and build it from scratch?
ok heres something better to ask. which of this books should i start with to assemble a guitar to understand how everything works but not make one from scratch yet.
