Well, might not be a proper part of the forum, but maybe admistrator can move this elsewhere... I was just visiting our local library today and of course I had to visit the music section - more specifically musical instrument literature section. There was too many good books (and DVDs - Seymour Duncan's Guide To Pickups, that I'll have to check later) to borrow so I picked first three that caught my eye. First was just a Finnish book named "Finnish Guitar in 2000s" - presenting some of our nation's builders (for example Amfisound, Ruokangas, Lottonen Guitars, Flaxwood...). The instruments by Kimmo Nissinen were quite interesting, he makes instruments from recycled junk (with some decent parts of course) Like this one, the body is a light motorcycles gas tank. Ok, enough of Finnish builders. Two other books I borrowed were The Making Of Stringed Instruments - A Workshop Guide by George Buchanan and Classic Guitar Construction by Irving Sloane. Both have some common tips for wood working, some tips for diy tools and jigs and instructions how to do things. Hopefully I get something out of these, usually there's many tricks for me to steal. And of course I have couple of books in my own bookshelf. Like Melvyn Hiscock's Make Your Own Electric Guitar, Guitar Finishing Step-By-Step by Dan Erlewine & Don MacRostie, Building Electric Guitars by Martin Koch and some Finnish equivalents on the subject. I've also borrowed The Art Of Inlay (by Larry Robinson) and Guitar Player Repair Guide (by Dan Erlewine) earlier. So... you guys have any recommendations for bedtime reading?
