This guidebook shows owners and dreamers the basics of getting the best sound possible out of their Fender amp with simple and advanced modifications. These include essential and fundamental tips like selecting tubes, capacitors, pots, and other electronic equipment, as well as biasing and setting up your amp. It also covers great hot-rodding enhancements to give you the tone of the pros at your fingertips, such as making one channel into an overdrive channel, modifying tone controls, making one channel either a Marshall or Vox channel (changing preamp and tone arrangement—not a permanent, destructive mod), building splitter boxes to run two amps simultaneously, creating splitter speaker setups within one amp, building the perfect gig amp (something light and portable, but with big sound, like an early Mesa Boogie), and more.

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.
