Guitar sleuth and music-history detective Deke Dickerson tells the true tales behind 48 rare-guitar and amplifier finds that will make any player or collector green with envy. A hoarder's attic stuffed with nearly 600 vintage guitars still in their boxes. A mint 1954 Fender Telecaster tucked under a bed in a family friend's house. Jazz legend Charlie Christian's Gibson ES-250, spotted in a magazine ad. A rare-as-hen's-teeth Shoreline Gold '56 Fender Stratocaster hidden in attic for 30 years! These are just some of the stories to which Dickerson treats readers. These days, baby boomers who wish they'd been rock 'n' roll stars have shot the vintage guitar market into the stratosphere. And just as with classic valuable automobiles, finding that holy grail of a guitar stashed away beneath a bed, in a closet, in the dusty corner of a guitar shop, or up in an attic is something that all guitar aficionados dream of. Here are some of of those stories, related in compelling fashion by the author and illustrated with eimages of the rare finds.
