4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Worth Finding April 6 2000
By Tucker Amidon - Published on Amazon.com
Bill Foley's seminal work proved very helpful for me. One could not ask for a more complete text on building a custom electric. I got into guitars and found that the beauty of the construction was something that I had to learn more about. This book gives instructions on how to assemble your own custom axe from popular manufacturers' assembly-ready guitar parts. And even if you aren't going to make your own, buy this one to learn all about how the different parts work, from standard pickups to humbuckers, from tremolo and tonal controls to passive, noiseless pickups. The advice he gives also helped me choose specific components for my guitar, and then told me how to put it all together. Although it is out of print, try to order it through Amazon's Out-of-Print service, which has helped me in the past. A must for a guitar lover.

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful book for beginners Nov. 15 2000
By Nicholas Gomez - Published on Amazon.com
This is an interesting book for complete beginners. The instructions show the reader how to assemble a custom made guitar from popular manufacturers parts. There are no photos, only drawings. The wiring diagrams appear to be quite useful. When used in conjunction with a proper parts catalogue like Stewart-Macdonald's, it would appear that the reader should be able to construct his or her own custom built electric guitar.
