Hummmmmmmmmm Yeah
i loved the way melvin WRITES his stuff.. but for me it lacks the details i like that much.
ill have to buy the other one... the one Feline recommended. Dan's Book
q: )
Thanks for the recommendations guys.
SO... before i purchase the books... is there any tips on which tools should i buy to make the basic setups like : string height, truss rod adjustment, bridge and springs setup, intonation??? cause i better order it before the book arrives.
the weather has just switched to the ultra cold mode here in germany and i have 3 guitars right now: one ibanez 7 string that was already settled up for free cause it was new and i bought it in the shop; A fender stratocaster that may need the truss rod adjustment.. and something else : this guitar has lots of noise coming from the $%&#ing SPRINGS . how can i quit that noise?
and a gibson flying V that i barely Use because its in E standard . so it will need a setup or soemthing. at least a truss rod adjustment cause of the weather.
Hails and thanks again guys
It looks like ill visit you this year.

the hisc--k book isnt about details - its about the method(s)

i read negative comments from someone recently who complained that it didnt have the details need to do an accurate strat copy.  nope, not what the books about.... but it does have all the methods you would need to do it... and the details can be found elsewhere
