The Ultimate Guitar Book
A unique, visually-compelling documentary of the evolution of the modern guitar from its earliest acoustic roots to the most recent synth guitars. Provides a wealth of knowledge on how guitars are made, how they work, how they differ from each other and why some are better - or more significant - than others. Guitar makers have consistently responded to new musical needs with electrification, and recently, sythesized sound. In chronological format, these and other innovations are carefully explained and put into historical context. The pioneers of the industry are profiled, while smaller and idiosyncratic individual makers are not overlooked. 192 pages.
