9780061699191: Guitar Heaven: The Most Famous Guitars to Electrify Our World

In this captivating guide to the greatest electric guitars of all time, guitar expert Neville Marten selects the most seminal instruments, from Ampeg to Zemaitis, and reveals why each is musically and historically significant. Each guitar is presented with beautiful, evocative images and shown in the hands of an iconic musician to illustrate how, through combining the skill of the player and the instrument maker, an inanimate object of wood and metal can be transformed into one of the world's most expressive tools of communication.

The instruments showcased in Guitar Heaven have left an indelible impression on popular music, both in terms of sound and visual impact. This fascinating gallery shows the instrument not as the two-dimensional object so often depicted in most guitar books, but as a vibrant, epoch-changing icon of the twentieth century—and into the future.

About the Author:

Neville Marten was a guitar repairer for Gibson and Fender's UK operations during the 1970s and 1980s, working on a host of valuable and rare guitars, including Hendrix's "Woodstock" Stratocaster. As current editor of Guitar Techniques magazine and former editor of Guitarist, he has met and interviewed dozens of legendary guitarists, from Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler to Brian May and George Harrison. He plays guitar in British rock and roller Marty Wilde's Wildcats, a position he has enjoyed since 1983.
