These are the guitars so famous that their names are often household words: B. B. King's Lucille, Eric Clapton's Blackie, Stevie Ray Vaughan's First Wife, Billy F Gibbons' Pearly Gates, Neil Young's Old Black, and many more. Here's the first-ever illustrated history of the actual guitars of the stars that made the music. Other best-selling guitar histories look at the rank-and-file models, but this book is unique in profiling the actual "star guitars"--the million-dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock, which sold at Sotheby's auction house in 1993 for $1,300,000. Amateurs buy guitars to emulate the stars--Clapton's Strat, Slash's Les Paul--and this book explains the stars' modifications, thus showing how others can recreate those famous tones.

"A guitar nerd's dream, this art book features more than 700 photos of some of the most famous guitars in the world, including detailed histories of Eric Clapton's "Blackie," Stevie Ray Vaughn's "First Wife," and Neil Young's "Old Black." You're gonna have to win a lottery ticket or visit the Rock Hall to get a closer look than this."
"The first thing that grabs you about Star Guitars is the book’s front cover cut out that frames the psychedelic Cream days axe of Eric Clapton, known as The Fool. Open the hardbound book and a colorful montage of album covers and posters featuring famous guitarists and their guitars gets the adrenaline pumping. Fortunately, Star Guitars delivers a page turner that’s impossible to put down."
"For hardcore shredders and the guitar novice alike, Star Guitars is a beautifully constructed, well-researched look at the tools that helped to create some of the most legendary songs ever put to tape."
