It will all be linked from Unfretted.com but release and details are on fretlessguitar.co.uk.

Prices with postage to be confirmed, it is a limited First Edition run and as its full colour glossy was quite expensive to produce.

Like all Unfretted projects, it will run on a not for profit basis, aiming to break even if all copies are sold.

Hopefully will get the batch from the printers some time next week.

Well, slight delay at the printers, seen the 2nd proof copy today and all is well.

Had to do a bit of work after the 1st proof, improving diagrams, lightening some pics (my software only produces RGB images and the CMYK conversion was darkening some images)

So all being well the print run will be tomorrow, binding etc. over the next couple of days, delivery Friday (fingers crossed).

Just got the books from the printers and I must say even I am impressed.

Lovely high quality gloss paper, real coffee table stuff, and a great cover.

Still to confirm postage prices at the post office tomorrow.

On the usual not-for-profit basis this is a limited first edition run, hope to sell all and break even!

ok, great! I am bit confused by the pricing of the book on the website. How much is it? and how much is the shipping to Europe? I can't see the price of the book only on the website. Only the price of the cd.

Mmmm... must rectify that, the price does come up when you hit the PAY NOW button...

The book is 14.99 - packing and international shipping is 6.99

It is quite expensive to produce a high quality book in small volumes and we will only break even if we sell the whole print run.
