You guys have any books to recommend for setting up guitars? I have a Les Pauls and a Telecaster.

I'm ordering a few books on guitar electronics and I'd like to also get a book that deals with setting up a guitar.

Thanks in advance!

To be honest, there are plenty good enough tutorials on the web that are free. A simple google search for guitar set up will give you plenty of useful information...

That's a good point. The web is my most important source of information for tinkering with guitars. I'm not sure how I would have dared do all the mods and painting I've done without the web.

I still like tangible books though. I don't like to bring my laptop during my morning thinking time in the washroom. hehe

I make guitars and pickups. I also make sh*t that'll blow you the f*k up as well as things that will rebuild you - I have the technology

More like his faptop

There is an ultimate set up guide in the EG section, various tuts on the web and dans 'guitar repair book' is pretty good, but a touch expensive if you just want it for one subject (its a huge book)
