Guitar re-building... technical info please !


Recommended Posts

As a keyboardist I mainly reside on Keyboard Corner, but am posting here on behalf of my bassist,


who's computer is f**ked!


After succesfully completing a neck repair on his bass, he's decided to look into more 'technical' stuff -


like straightening twisted necks/re-fretting etc.


Can anyone recommend any good books/sources that provide this sort of info?



Thanks in advance.



some stuff on myspace

Books? I can HIGHLY recommend the Guitar Player Repair Guide and How To Make Your Electric Guitar Play Great!, both by Dan Erlewine. The Guitar Player Repair Guide even comes with a nifty set of plastic concave and convex radius-gauges inside the back-cover; I use mine all the time. :cool:


The Stewart-MacDonald 'site has a lot of free information on it, as well as being a source for a lot of books, videos, blueprints, etc. Of course, they also carry a lot of tools, supplies, and parts.


Here's a related thread, as well.
