Hi Jenna, I sure got a lot out of Mike's book. I especially found his illustrated wiring diagrams helpful. They are very clear and I've used them all. I like the wiring aspect of the process and i've collected quite a few pickups both piezo and magnetic. I've use Mike's diagrams with the mag pickups too, but found they are different sometimes than Mikes. His are just for piezos. There are other great books on those subjects with specific diagrams for every pickup configuration imaginable. And when you get in trouble, you get all the help needed right here on Nation. This stuff is fun. .. Dave

Hey Jenna, welcome to the Nation. I've learned a lot in this club. I'm on build #23, a lap steel guiltar. I was introduced to all this by Mike Orr's book and i started buying his fretboards. I bet half my builds sport his good work. Your first build looks good. Keep it coming. .... Dave
