dude your thread title is just plain annoying.

What one?!?!?!! H3LP

- Bold does not work on a title. it does not make the title come out in bold
it just looks stupid.
you've done this on many of your threads.
i'll report the next one of yours with a title like that.
- you only need one question mark and no exclamation points.
- 3 instead of E is passe.

try to put something in your title that narrows down the topic of your thread.

do better next time.

Make Your Own Electric Guitar is the correct name.
By Melvin Hiscock.
Great book.

Honestly, you will learn a lot more just asking questions here.

We have access to pictures, videos, and of course, my seemingly unending flow of luthiery knowledge.

Also we have Perry Ormsby!

(To the noobs: Perry Ormsby = 2nd coming of Christ)

Although, from what I hear, Melvyn Hiscock's book is good.

Also, check out Build Your Own Electric Guitar by Martin Oakham
