FENDER BASS HANDBOOK THE, How to Buy, Maintain, Set Up, Troubleshoot and Modify Your Bass. Paul Balmer

FENDER BASS HANDBOOK THE, How to Buy, Maintain, Set Up, Troubleshoot and Modify Your Bass. Paul Balmer

 

Description

In 1950 Leo Fender took on the challenge of making a string bass audible in 'Western Swing'. He also wanted to design a bass playable by guitarists - with 'Precision' fretting and a workable 'scale'. His audacious solution caused a revolution and today no aspect of popular music is untouched by his genius.

This easy-to-use manual offers advice on how to get the best from your Fender Bass, be it a budget Chinese Squier or a Classic Jazz. With step-by-step guidance and clear colour photographs, subjects include changing pickups, adjusting a truss rod, active EQ and a DIY fretless conversion on a budget Squier.

Seventeen case studies examine in detail everything from an ex-John Entwistle 1952-53 USA-made '51-type precision to Indonesian, Japanese, Mexican and Chinese Fender Bass variants, including Jazz, Telecaster Bass, Bass VI, Bronco, Mustang and Jaguar. Legendary Californian session bassist Carol Kaye supplies a foreword and there are 'Tech Tip' contributions from world-renowned Bass experts John and Andy Diggins.

Superbly illustrated and designed, this manual includes case studies of key models - everything from a 1948 prototype to a 2008 'closet classic' - but also gives appropriate attention to today's affordable Squier versions.

Fender Stratocaster Manual
How to buy, maintain and set up the world's most popular electric guitar
By: Paul Balmer
Foreword: Hank Marvin

Leo Fender launched the Stratocaster electric guitar in 1954 as an upgrade to his Telecaster. The Strat - streamlined, chrome-plated, efficient, fast and sexy - soon gained icon status. Today, while original models change hands for thousands of dollars, almost identical Stratocasters are mass-produced by Fender USA for sale worldwide. The Fender Stratocaster is still a low-maintenance good little runner and, with the help of this practical 'how to' manual, should last a lifetime.

Introduced in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul has become the world's second most popular electric Guitar, favoured by legendary Guitarists such as Joe Perry, Jimmy Page, Slash, Peter Frampton and Zakk Wylde. Designed by the great musician and innovator, Les Paul, with help from Gibson craftsmen, this Guitar has constantly evolved and in 2007 an all digital model was launched. Today, while original models change hands for thousands of pounds, almost identical Epiphone and Gibson models are mass-produced for sale worldwide. The Gibson Les Paul remains a classic instrument and, with the help of this practical 'how to' manual, will last a lifetime.

Paul Balmer has played and taught Guitar for forty years. His background includes broadcasting, video/DVD production and authorship of several books.

This guidebook shows owners and dreamers the basics of selecting and buying a Les Paul; maintenance and repairs such as tuning, setting intonation, tremolo alignment, fret repairs, bridge and nut adjustments, electrics troubleshooting; spur-of-the-moment stageside fixes; basic “enhancements” and more. With tips and techniques specific to each of the numerous Les Paul models, this book is the guitarist's ticket to electrifying success. Along with the Fender Stratocaster, the Gibson Les Paul is without doubt the most iconic electric guitar ever made – beloved and sought after by guitarists everywhere. It's the signature sound for musicians as distinguished and different as Jimmy Page, Carl Perkins, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Mudy Waters, and Frank Zappa. 178 pages
