9780760346877: The Strat in the Attic 2: More Thrilling Stories of Guitar Archaeology
Reseña del editor:

More astounding stories of rare guitar finds and the music legends who owned them.   Do you dream of finding a 1954 Stratocaster or 1952 Gibson Les Paul online, at a garage sale, or in the local penny saver? How about virtually rubbing elbows with one of your favorite rock legends? Following up his first-of-a-kind The Strat in the Attic, musician, journalist, and “guitarchaeologist” Deke Dickerson shares the stories behind dozens of more astounding finds including: 

  • A rarer-than-hen’s-teeth 1966 Hallmark Swept-Wing that originally belonged to Robbie Krieger of the Doors, stashed away in an attic in Alaska for forty years!
  • A crazy-valuable 1958 Gibson Flying V belonging to a Chicago bluesman—who, it turns out, also happens to have an equally rare 1958 Gibson Explorer!
  • An out-of-the-blue “to whom it may concern” email that leads the author to a trailer park in Salem, Oregon, where one of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys’ original 1940s Epiphone Emperor archtops is waiting to be purchased for a song!
  • Nat “King” Cole Trio guitarist Oscar Moore’s Stromberg Master 400 archtop, bought by luthier R. C. Allen—who was also gifted a 1953 Standel amp by Merle Travis!
  • The 1970 Micro-Frets Huntington given to the author by Buddy Merrill, the amazingly talented guitarist from the Lawrence Welk show, on the express condition that he “promises to practice.”
Photos of the guitars and other exciting memorabilia round out a package that no vintage-guitar aficionado will want to be without!
