Everything changed in the Sixties, not least music. At the heart of this mesmerizing decade was the electric guitar. Bent, distorted, reverbed and overloaded, its sound drove some of the most revolutionary music ever made. This colorful book, decked out with 340 color photos and four fold-out spreads, traces the guitars, players and music of the '60s year by year - from folk-rock to surf to psychedelia, plus jazz, blues and country. A special section features The Beatles and their influential axes.
