Ok, in my school, we have to do this stupid thjing called a senior project. I decided to do mine on guitar building where I am going to build an electric fro scratch. Does anyone know of a book that teaches this stuff, like how wood effects the tone and such?!!!!!

I think it's called "to build an electric guitar" - look for author Hiscock. Good one, got it myself for my "senior" project that I don't seem to find time for!

THat's a pretty heavy project man. You'll need a lot of tools for the job if you wanna do the wood yourself. I suggest buying parts and putting htem together. THat woudl be a big job too!
