How to buy, maintain and set up your acoustic guitar
Most rock and pop guitarists begin their playing on an acoustic guitar, and the advent of MTV’s Unplugged and improvements in acoustic amplification mean this once poor relation has returned to centre stage – although, of course, the acoustic guitar has always reigned supreme in classical, flamenco, folk, delta blues and country music. Superbly illustrated and designed, the Manual includes case studies of key models – from a Martin D28 to a Yamaha budget classic – and explains in detail how to set up, maintain and repair most popular types of acoustic guitar.
