mega guitar mart as the teck was younger than my axe. I picked up Tim's Telemaster
Book. What an eye opener. When my buddy wanted to mod his Les Paul
I told him before you pick up a screw driver to check under the hood you need to
get a copy of Tim's The New Gibson Les Paul and Epiphone wiring diagrams book.
This book will set you free. I had a good understanding of the basics of wiring
but this book lays it out so effortlessly I would tell anyone with a Les Paul style
guitar this is book is indispensable. Even helped me with my Rick 360 setup.
Simply loaded with no-BS descriptions of How and Why pickups and the associated
electronics function together to make a great sounding Guitar. Where else can
you read about the theory and winding setups of multiple pickups and go the a website and
listen for yourself before you blow you hard earned dough on a new setup. Also If
you were thinking about messing with splitting your humbuckers and what you can do with them
with a little switch magic, again there is even a link to the demo sounds before you
even pickup a parts catalog to order.
When I decided the time was right to get a Les Paul, I had to purchase one for myself.
If you have to buy just one book on wiring, I highly recommend Tim's book, THE NEW GIBSON LES PAUL AND EPIPHONE WIRING DIAGRAMS BOOK. Not only do I recommend it to you, the potential customer, but I recommend his books to ALL of my Paint Your Own Guitar customers. -- John Gleneicki, Author - The Paint Your Own Guitar Book Series
I bought this as a present for a friend, as I'm not a Les Paul fan....!!!!sorry sorry...no offense to Les Paul, may he rest in peace, but I'm a Tele hollic !!
However..my friend is suddenly, my new best friend, this book is awesome, so easy to follow and do, no need for an engineering degree to do it, simple step by step
so good....maybe...one day I will have a Les Paul, just kidding, go and buy this, you will love it!
All these books from Swike are serious good value for money, more so extreme helpful in the pursuit of good guitar tone, not for the coffee table, its straight to the workshop !
When a book refers to color diagrams, it should actually have color diagrams, not black and white. This book is practically worthless as is because every page refers to "the color diagram below", etc. but all pictures are poorly reproduced in black and white. They aren't even scaled properly. When reduced for print, some photos are stretched and flattened.
So, I'll give the e-version 4 stars, the print version 2 stars. Average of 3.
