Electric Guitar Making & Marketing: How to build and market high-end instruments, from your workshop's setup to the complete business plan

This book tells you everything about making electric guitars following professional standards, phase-by-phase, step-by-step.It's all about leaving your dent in the universe in the shape of the most beautiful, incredibly sounding guitar you can make—that's clear. But building guitars professionally starts before you even cut the wood: You need to setup your workplace, you have to define your identity as guitar maker, and decide the guiding principles of your endeavor as luthier. What kind of guitars will you build? For whom? What is going to be the winning characteristic of your instruments?And then you have to sell the things, of course, so the last part is focused in the marketing process. You will read about positioning your brand, pricing your instruments, photographing them, promoting them, building a great website for your lutherie business, using social networking to show your work to the world, and managing and closing guitar sales.Written by renowned luthier Leo Lospennato (author of the bestseller "Electric Guitar and Bass Design") this book represents the new standard in solid-body guitar making, and the only resource that presents both the technical and commercial aspects of the fascinating art of building musical instruments.

How to Build Electric Guitars: The Complete Guide to Building and Setting Up Your Own Custom Guitar

How to Build Electric Guitars: The Complete Guide to Building and Setting Up Your Own Custom Guitar

In the past few years the market for electric guitar kits and parts has exploded. For every two enthusiasts, there are four opinions on how properly to fill woodgrain. In this book, Will Kelly cuts through all that noise and shows how, with a little patience and some inexpensive tools, the average person can turn a modest investment into a gig-worthy instrument and perhaps even a lifelong hobby. Kelly presents guitar-building in a progressive fashion, beginning with a simple Stratocaster-style kit with a bolt-on neck and continuing on to a "relic'd" Telecaster-style build, two Gibson-style set-neck models, and a custom double-neck mash-up. Because each build is more involved than the previous, the reader builds on his or her skill set and acquires only the tools necessary for the reader's level of interest. Kelly shows how to apply finishes, choose and install hardware, wire electronics, execute the final assembly, and set up the finished guitar for proper action and intonation.
