Your Electric Guitar by Adrian Legg (Yes, that Adrian
I was lucky enough to see Adrian Legg
open for Eric Johnson in a small club and still can't believe what I saw
him do. In addition to being a truly brilliant and original guitarist,
Mr. Legg also will not leave his instruments well enough alone! There
are a lot of recipes for wild instruments, although I found this short
little book a bit hard to follow since the text runs straight from one
project to the next without breaks. Best for intermediate level tinkerers.
Projects for Musicians by Craig Anderton
Although it doesn't cover the basic elements
of guitar wiring like the books above, this volume includes a lot of projects
such as pre-amps and (relatively) simple guitar effects units.
Started in Electronics by Forrest M. Mims III
Obviously, this is not specifically a
guitar electronics book, but it will definitely educate you about the various
components (far beyond what I cover here), teach you some theory, and give
you some sample projects to help you, well, "get started."
