Electric Guitars and Basses, Revised and Updated Edition
Electric Guitars and Basses tells the story in full color of one of the most influential forces on American culture in the 20th century, the electric guitar. From the earliest "lap steels" that reshaped the sound of Hawaiian music, through the "Spanish-neck" models that created a new voice in the jazz world and powered the early rock and rollers, and on to the solidbody models that shattered conventional ideas of guitar design and guitar music, all of the classic and historically important models are displayed and discussed by guitar experts George Gruhn and Walter Carter. This new edition features an additional 16 pages of important instruments and newly discovered information. ©2010, 272 pages.
