From the Award-Winning Team that produced the best-selling Ultimate Guitar Book comes this comprehensive pictorial history of the genuine classics to have emerged during the first 70 years of the electric guitar.
Classic Electrics illustrates the full story of the electric guitar - from the hollowbodies so beloved of jazz and blues players in the 1940s and 50s, through to the iconic shapes of the solidbodies that rewrote the history of rock'n'roll in the 1960s and 70s and helped create a modern cultural phenomenon.
The book's A-to-Z format details more than 350 models from over 70 manufacturers, illustrated throughout by an unrivalled collection of studio-quality colour photographs that showcases the brilliance, versatility, and sometimes downright eccentricity of electric guitar designers from around the world.
