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.

Hi acoustic guitarists! This book was a real challenge to write. What a broad brief the Acoustic Guitar covers - everything from a 5 course Baroque guitar to a National steel. Fortunately they all have things in common. I have made the focus practical - "what can I do to bring my acoustic guitar to optimum performance?"
I have also spent a lot of time on the issue of UNPLUGGED - which usually these days means - 'PLUGGED into the PA'. How can we get the best from our guitars in this situation?
The guitars covered range from Martins and Taylors to Ramirez and Yamaha with a few more unusual guitars from Fylde and National resonator.
I hope the book helps you get the most from your guitars.
All the best
