(Book). Foreword by Zakk Wylde This is a striking visual account of the most prominent guitars in the instrument's illustrious history, from early nineteenth-century acoustics to the state-of-the-art models of today. The book features a rich history of over 200 guitars, revealing the inspirations and intents behind every model. There is an easy-to-read specification chart listing every detail from body styles, finishes, and inlays to scales, frets, and pick-ups. Gorgeous, full-page photographs showcase every guitar, plus there are photographs of the artists who played them best. As a special bonus, five full-color pull-out posters are included featuring the family tree of the five major dynasties Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Martin, and Rickenbacker.
