Learning to set up a guitar?

I want to learn to set up and do minor repairs to my guitar. I just picked up a dvd called guitar set up and repair by metal methods. Has anyone seen it?

Should i pick up a cheapy guitar to work on and mess with?

what is the cost for the tools i need for setting up a guitar?

www.stewmac.com is an excellent place for guitar repair specific tools. Based on what you want to do, you can set your budget accordingly.

Get "The Guitar Player Magazine Guide to Guitar Repair". It may repeat some of what is on the DVD, but having it as a corraberating reference will be very helpful,ie:If the DVD and the book agree, do it. If they don't you have either food for thought, or a question you can ask me here. ;)
