This DVD documents the building of a complete custom electric guitar, right from cutting down the tree as a source for the timber, to the final twang through an amplifier. This provides an in depth understanding of what is involved in the construction of an electric guitar. The DVD runs to 3 hours 26 minutes and is divided into 40 chapters so that it can either be watched as a single documentary or accessed as a reference for guitar building. In addition, a short chapter is devoted to the music composed by professional musicians specially for the DVD. A Complete Custom Electric Guitar Build is NOT simply a guitar assembly DVD but a guitar BUILD so that the complete process can be seen. This DVD will consequently be of interest not only to guitar builders, but also to anyone who is interested in learning about the entire process of guitar building, from tree to finished product. The techniques described on the DVD also provide information essential to anyone wishing to repair or modify an electric guitar. Rather than using an existing design such as a Stratocaster or Les Paul, the DVD describes the building of a guitar with a unique design. The DVD can be used as a guide to building a guitar using an established design, but also shows the bigger picture! Accompanied by superb quality music written specially for this DVD, the process of the guitar build is shown in an entertaining way whilst retaining accuracy and detail with close-up footage, multiple camera angles, graphics and animations. The tools and facilities used in A Complete Custom Electric Guitar Build are DIY, making guitar building a realistic prospect for the enthusiast. The DVD is not designed to show a commercial guitar manufacture in a factory, which in many ways is quite different. Included in the package is a 16 page full colour booklet with additional detail and discussion about guitar building. By offering a unique and novel perspective to guitar building, the producers of this DVD provide all the essential information necessary to understand the process and build a quality custom electric guitar. The build stages are divided into 40 chapters for easy reference which include, cutting down a cherry tree, cutting the log, kiln drying, thicknessing, fretboard shaping, cutting fret slots, mother-of-pearl cutting, inlaying the fretboard, truss rod fitting, neck profiling, neck and headstock cut, fretting, neck shaping, body cutting, body shaping & sanding, spraying, polishing, gold plating, potting pickups, electrics, earthing, nut cutting, setup and final test.
