It has never been more tempting to put together your own "custom" electric guitar and today the internet offers unprecedent mail-order access to the world's best materials.

However, few of us have the specialist routing and shaping tools to start from scratch. This easy-to-use, step-by-step manual shows how to use good-quality pre-finished components (or if you have access to a spraying facilities, then a raw, unfinished neck and body), together with suitable hardware, to build your own individual dream custom 'S'-type. Alternatively, you could follow Eric Clapton's lead and recycle a "Bitsa" from "bitsa this and bitsa that"!

With a detailed look at four project guitars built especially for this book, and case studies on possibly the world's most celebrated homebuilt guitar - Brian May's "Red Special"- as well as Bo Diddley's "Cigar Box", this book provides all the information that is satisfying both to build and play.

The down-to-earth text features advice and guidance from luthiers John Diggins and Andrew Guyton, who between them have built guitars for Tony Iommi, Mark King, Roy Orbison and Brian May.
