The Definitive Reference Work on the Guitar, and the Most Beautiful Book on the Subject Ever Produced

A stunning visual guide to the history and development of this instrument—featuring specially commissioned photographs of famous, rare, and vintage guitars, from the earliest acoustics to the latest electrics. Packed with construction and design information, and with detailed, informative profiles on everything from the legendary (Martin, Gibson, Fender) to the weird, the exotic, and the oddball (Burns, Hagstrom, Danelectro, to name a few), The Ultimate Guitar Book brings each instrument to life and makes immensely pleasurable browsing for players and collectors alike, from beginner to professional.

“When you get right down to it, these guitars represent something uniquely American . . . You're transported to a place where it’s always Saturday night in the summertime, a place where cars are fast and girls are pretty. And when you pull into the parking lot and cut the engine, you can hear the music and know that everybody’s inside, twisting the night away.”— David Nicholson, Washington Post Book World
