About this title

Synopsis:

A good guitar repairman is hard to find, and when found, a long waiting list seems inevitable. Those who have confronted this problem may now turn to Don E. Teeter’s encyclopedic treatment of guitar adjustment, maintenance, and repair. Profusely illustrated with line drawings and photographs and written in a clear and straightforward style, this book takes the reader on a guided tour of the acoustic guitar’s various parts and their functions. Teeter provides detailed instructions for disassembling and assembling guitars, describes the tools and materials used in their repair, and gives step-by-step procedures for major and minor repairs, inlay work, and refinishing.

The book is not just for the experts in guitar repair. As Teeter notes, "Quite a few of the techniques listed in this manual, such as adjusting tension rods, adjusting string heights (action), repairing minor cracks, setting movable bridges for proper intonation (note accuracy), dressing and polishing frets, gluing loose bridges, changing machine heads and of course, the proper care and maintenance of the instruments, are within the capabilities of the average amateur with limited tools."
