Along with the percussive, driving bass, the electric guitar transformed modern music and created new sonic landscapes. If you dream of being the next Eric Clapton and want a really personalised, top-quality instrument - or if you are a woodworker searching for a satisfying project - make one yourself. These well-detailed instructions for building a standard six-string solid-body model guitar and bass, emphasise simplicity and logic, use common tools and easy-to-order materials, and provide resources for obtaining electronic components and other hardware. Body shape, bridge types, neck and head-stock, cutting and shaping, and assembly are all covered in detail.
