If your just starting out with guitar kit building it covers most of the important setting up guides with quality photographs that will guide you step by step through the process, there are some helpful hints and tips too along with some case studies. English I bought this book for some insight into the workings and details of Brian May's famous Red Special guitar which this book features as a case study that includes a comparison with the high end, limited edition, hand built replica built by English Luthier, Andrew Guyton. The rest of the book is interesting enough for people embarking on building any of the other types of electric guitar covered in the book, but Brian May enthusiasts or potential Red Special builders should also appreciate the material. However, there is nothing that isn't already out there in the public domain on the various internet forums dedicated to the Red Special and other Brian May equipment.
