9780760347010: Star Guitars: 101 Guitars That Rocked the World

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.

Review:

ALTERNATIVE PRESS
"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."



Classic Rock Magazine, March 2011
“The term ‘handsome volume’ seems inadequate to describe the classiest and most luxurious example of full-on, hardcore guitar porn published since Billy F. Gibbons’s Rock + Roll Gearhead ...a powerful Exhibit-A argument in favour of actual physical-object type books. Even if every single word and image from Star Guitars was available online, you still wouldn't be getting the half of it.” (9 out of 10 stars) PopMatters.com, January 2011
“This is a big, fat, beautiful book full of big, fat, beautiful guitars, as well as enough trivia and gossip to satisfy any rocker.” Midwest Book Review, January 2011
“From famous guitars whose names are commonly known in the rock world to pioneers of playing, this provides a fine illustrated history of the guitars - and their stars. Star Guitars is presented by guitar type and packs in full-page color photos which are key to identification and appreciation.” Guitar & Bass Magazine, February 2011“Aside from being a thoroughly captivating read, it's fully stocked with superb photos, tour posters, and artwork, all adding colour to the tales of these glorified hitmakers...this is the ideal browser's companion. Dip in and out at your leisure."



GUITAR INTERNATIONAL
"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."



EXAMINER.COM
"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."



BOOKVIEWS BY ALAN CARUBA
"Some books are just works of art in themselves. This is the case of Star Guitars...If there is someone you know who loves guitars, this one is a Christmas-keeper!"
