Review quote

GUITAR INTERNATIONAL "The first thing that grabs you about Star Guitars is the book s front cover cut out that frames the psychedelic Cream days axe of Eric Clapton, known as The Fool. Open the hardbound book and a colorful montage of album covers and posters featuring famous guitarists and their guitars gets the adrenaline pumping. Fortunately, Star Guitars delivers a page turner that s impossible to put down.""
