Product description

"Electric Guitar Sound" is the first publication to thoroughly dissect issues of guitar sound and construction for the working player. The book includes an in-depth analysis of the many components of tone, an examination of the most important vintage and modern models, and a CD of comparative sound samples. How does an ash body differ from alder? What subtle colorations does a rosewood fingerboard add to a maple neck? Which bridge hardware maximizes body resonance? How do Gibson P-90 pickups differ from Fender Jazzmaster pickups? "Electric Guitar Sound" will tell you, and along the way will help any player translate the myriad variables in wood, hardware and pickup options into the tone and playing feel that is just right for them.
