The ultimate full-color guide for guitarists looking to maintain and repair their instruments. In Electric Guitar Repair, acclaimed guitar builder and Vintage Guitar magazine columnist Will Kelly imparts decades of know-how, providing a comprehensive how-to guide for electric guitar enthusiasts who want to keep their instruments in top playing condition. Approaching the topic in an organic fashion, Kelly, author of Voyageur Press' How to Build Electric Guitars, begins by showing that with a relatively modest toolbox, anyone from a stone-cold beginner to a seasoned gigging musician can keep his or her growing fleet of electric guitars in tip-top form. Applying his own hard-earned knowledge to solidbodies and hollowbodies across all makes and vintages, Kelly moves on to address the guitar "system by system," working his way from the mysteries of the neck (including truss rods and fretwork) through the hardware (tuners, pickguards, and more); the body (finishes); electronics (pickups, pots, and wiring); and, finally, on to the setup (action and intonation). Each procedure is illustrated with a series of specially commissioned, full-color step-by-step photographs designed to help take the guesswork out of routine maintenance and repairs. Including an exhaustive list of suppliers and resources, the result is the most expansive guide to electric guitar maintenance available to today's guitarist.
