The author is specific and detailed in every process described, and he covers just about every aspect of guitar care. he has information specific to Fender and Gibson, among other brands.
He covers general maintenance issues such as installing strings, adjusting intonation, etc. that every player ought to be able to do. He also gets deep into details on major repairs, refinishing, the tools involved - you name it.
The author is very specific about materials and finishes, down to showing how to repair individual chips and cracks and what to use on nitro vs. poly finishes.
While there is more detail here than the casual user needs, I've always felt that it's better to have MORE detail then needed rather than too little information. This book guided me through a complete 12-coat refinish of a bass, plus defretting the fingerboard. The result was excellent.
Plus, if you get somewhat proficient at "tweaking" the instrument you could have a GREAT guitar. The satisfaction of getting a so-so instrument, and making it a GREAT instrument is
very rewarding...and saves the almighty dollar. Just by smoothing out the slots in the
nut and adjusting the action makes amazing results. Try the book...you will like it!
