Melvyn Hiscock has been making, repairing and writing about guitars for almost forty years. In 1986 his first book Make Your Own Electric Guitar was released and very soon was considered the first call work on the subject. A second, englarged, edition was published by NBS Publications set up by Melvyn Hiscock to market his own book. Over 100,000 copies have been sold and the book continues to be referred to as the authorative work on the subject. Many well-known  guitar makers from around the world started off using this book. In 2010 Make Your Own Acoustic Guitar was released. This follows the style of Make Your Own Electric Guitar by breaking the subject down into easily understandable chunks that de-mystify the subject.
