Just got my copy of Stephen Howard's opus. First impression is that it's lavishly illustrated with gorgeous photos - it's more like Dorling Kindersley than the Haynes of old.

One surprising bonus is that I've got two copies of pages 15 to 30. I do hope that doesn't mean I'm missing a few other pages elsewhere - must check!

Yeah, I've had mine a while now, very informative, although i must admit when i first saw a picture of it i thought it was some kind of spoof.... Haynes doing car manuals and that...

Great book, full of fascinating tips, technique and mechanical detail that could save a few bucks at the tech definitely. On small jobs anyway.

It really helped me sort out a simple G# key regulation problem after a cork fell off.

Should be 164 pages Dave.

I already had a copy of the baby manual, so I knew Haynes were branching out. But yeah - first time I saw the baby one, I thought that was a joke.

Who is this Stephen Howard?

Saxophone Manual? Bah! Humbug!

Some people are easy to fool.

Love you really Steve and still have my autographed copy.

Tin hat time again folks. But please read the yellow writing before being too rude. (Select the whole post if you can't see it).

Thanks for that. I would never have spotted it. Maybe I should turn the brightness down.

Did they charge you extra for that??
I haven't checked my current copies...though I will now...
If anyone else has double-pages, do let me know and I'll get Haynes to sort it.

PS. If you got it via Amazon don't forget to leave a review...the more the merrier!

Cheers,

Steve

Great book easy to use and dip in and out of, check out the man manual, nice piece of work a friend worked on that from the medical angle, we thought of producing a girlfriend manual but decided we don't have that long to live and a book with over 2000 pages of constantly changing information might not be that practical!

Excellent volume just to keep within reach for when you need it.

Wonder if Haynes have done one on the space shuttle. Bit late, but NASA must have second hand ones to flog off cheaply that would be worth a fiddle with.

Thank you Dave. I'll add it to the Spitfire and Lancaster ones. Better get in touch with NASA to find the going price.....

I checked my copies of the manual and didn't find any repeating pages - so it's it probably a one-off printing error.
The seller should replace it - but you might want to hang onto it in case it becomes a collectable item one day!

It's no problem - but I do intend to read it, and not keep it in pristine collector's condition!

Check all the other pages are there - sometimes you gain an extra, sometimes you get a duplicate and a missing page.
