Since 1967, Van Hoose has acquired a vast knowledge and love of Gibson's most expensive guitar. Here, he shares his expertise with other Gibson Super 400 enthusiasts in a wonderfully illustrated and comprehensively detailed work. The history of this trend-setting, 18-inch-wide, arch-top guitar is detailed from its creation in 1934 to the present. Van Hoose's research is based on interviews, photographs, old catalogs, etc. He effectively shows how this vintage instrument established its place as a jazz guitar as well as a respected musical medium for hillbilly groups and Western swing bands. He also includes a discussion of competing models and collector guidelines. Inevitably, every guitar collector/enthusiast and lover of fine jazz guitars will relish this extraordinary book.
