This book is fantastic at introducing guitarists to the art of setting up a guitar or bass properly.

I bought this book at the same time as a tool kit for guitars and have since learned through referencing this book how to set up instruments properly.

One thing I thought this book could improve on is perhaps make it smaller in size so one can keep it in a guitar case for on the go adjustments.

I also think for some topics it does not go as in depth as I would have liked it to go. Definitely a good beginners book to get introduced to guitar set ups though!

Good book (in english)

Jcee, 14.09.2013
A good book for the inner life of a guitar. I also saved a lot of money by doing a lot of things myself and could not make it.

Everything anyone who owns a guitar should know - to get the most out of them.
