2000 Guitars : The Ultimate Collection
Do you know your Stratocaster from your Telecaster? Your Gold-top from your arch-top? Your Danelectro from your D'Angelico? If you're a guitar player - or a guitar lover - this is the book for you. "2,000 Guitars" is a comprehensive visual and historical guide to that most lusted-after of instruments: the guitar. Compiled by a team of experts from the United States and the UK, it covers everything from early acoustic, classical, and resonator guitars through the hollow-body instruments of the jazz age, the celebrated solid and semi-solid models of the 1950s and 1960s, right up to cutting-edge modern-day electric, acoustic, and bass guitars. Presented in an easy-to-use A-Z format, the book features illustrations of 2,000 instruments by more than 300 guitar makers. There are detailed histories of all the major manufacturers - the Fenders, the Gibsons, the Martins, and so on - and key facts about many other brands from around the world.
