This book's A-to-Z format details more than 400 models from over 90 manufacturers, illustrated throughout by an unrivaled collection of studio-quality color photographs showcasing the brilliance, versatility, and sometimes downright eccentricity of guitar designers from around the world. This is a book that every guitar player or enthusiast should have on their bookshelves to be referred to again and again.
