Synopsis

An extravaganza for electric guitar lovers! This book features hundreds of American-made guitars and basses from the 40s to the 80s, including many rare brands and models. Read about the ups and downs of major companies like Fender and Gibson, and trace their variations in guitar design over the years. Learn more about Harmony and Kay, the big two of budget guitars. In fact, this book features many guitars that are often much harder to find on the vintage market--the everyman guitars, the student and budget models that got us started. Here youll find fascinating discussions of Valco, Peavey, Guild, Danelectro, and many others, along with chapters devoted to One-Shots and Sordid Seventies Samples and Early Eighties Oddities. Guitar enthusiasts will find not only the guitars they have dreamed of owning, but the ones they first owned. An authoritative and entertaining text, a helpful lexicon, gorgeous photographs, and foreword by .38 Special guitarist Jeff Carlisi make this book a necessity for any musicians library.
