‘The book is a document of the hand-builder, the craftsperson that Melvyn was’ – Guitarist Review, August 2021
Melvyn writes in a relaxed style, which is both informative and interesting, making this book ideally suited to the individual or student, and expert or novice, as well as anyone with more than a passing interest in the most influential instrument of the century.
Foreword by Brian May of Queen.
“Melvyn Hiscock has had the time, talent and infinite patience to produce this fine work, just the very thing I could have done with had it been available 30 years ago! Herein you will find a wealth of answers to questions which crop up at every stage in the design and creation of your own instrument, something which may eventually fit you more comfortably than your favourite slippers, or any commercially available guitar.”
Dr. Brian May
