Review quote

Anyone who loves guitars and guitar players (whether or not you're a player yourself) will love looking through this book. -- American Songwriter * . * I knew the guitar was going to be part of my life from the first time I was able to play something and put together a sequence of chords. -- Jimmy Page * . * It's not just about the first guitars or the players themselves, really... This is life, told and celebrated through guitars -- Premier Guitar * . * Ask a musician to talk about their first instrument and it seems that they are off and running, full of anecdotes, joy and poetic longing. -- Graham Parker * . *
