    Back cover copy
    Here are the 365 guitars, amps, and effects you must play--a full year of sonic enjoyment, pleasure, and just plain weirdness! From century-old classical guitars to the space-age Teuffel Birdfish, Dave Hunter ("Vintage Guitar" and "Guitar Player" magazines) leaves no flight case unopened in his search for the sublime, the bizarre, and the outrageous. Classic midcentury jazz boxes, booming dreadnaughts, twangin' Telecasters, country-picked hollowbodies, classic Stratocasters, the rockin' Les Paul, weird pawnshop specials--they're all here, expertly profiled and illustrated in color, along with the scads of great tube-driven and solid-state pedals and amps they've been run through over the decades.
    Flap copy
    No doubt about it . . . guitarists love their guitars, to the point of fetishizing them. Few own just one, and most are constantly dreaming of their next acquisition, whether it's attainable or purely a pipe dream. Now guitar journalist Dave Hunter brings enthusiasts the ultimate yearlong bucket list of not only guitars, but also amplifiers and effects that they absolutely must play. From century-old classical guitars to the space-age Teuffel Birdfish, Hunter ("Vintage Guitar" and "Guitar Player" magazines) leaves no flight case unopened in his search for the sublime, the bizarre, and the outrageous. Classic midcentury jazz boxes, booming dreadnaughts, twangin' Telecasters, country-picked hollowbodies, forward-looking Stratocasters, the rockin' Les Paul, weird pawnshop specials--they're all here, along with the scads of great tube-driven and solid-state pedals and amps they've been run through over the decades. Whether your tastes run classical or country, folk or metal, jazz or punk, there's something inside for you, expertly profiled by Hunter and illustrated with color photography of the instruments and rare memorabilia from the manufacturers and the stars associated with them. DAVE HUNTER is a writer and musician who has worked in the United States and the United Kingdom on a range of print and multimedia publications.
