Comprehensive step-by-step procedures show both novice and experienced guitarists how to build their very own unique, high-spec custom S-type instrument, tailor-made for their needs, for far less than the cost of buying a factory-built equivalent.

Details of fine-tuning, along with set-up advice, helps to ensure that the finished guitar will be a joy to own and play

About the Author


Paul Balmer, who has written six Haynes Manuals about guitars, is the son of dance band drummer Bill Balmer. Paul played drums from the age of 11 in the Merseybeat boom of the 1960s. He built his own kit from bits and pieces and, having no other option, did his own maintenance. His perfectly preserved 1964 Premier kit will be examined and maintained as a case study. His father’s ‘bitsa’ 1940s dance band kit will provide a useful historical reference. Paul lives in Northamptonshire.
