C. F. Martin & Company produces the best and most desirable guitars in the world - guitars that have been revered, collected, and played by the most legendary singers and songwriters of our time. In the sixties, artists such as Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and Joan Baez emerged onto the folk scene playing Martin Guitars and the company quickly realised that players wanted aged guitars with particular characteristics that had since been abandoned, so it began to reproduce old models, together with limited editions of artist signature models in collaboration with music legends such as Johnny Cash and Eric Clapton. Through lavish colour photographs, informative text, and revelatory anecdotes, the book examines more than one-hundred custom-made guitars, including instruments belonging to Willie Nelson and Sting, as well as Elvis Presley's famous "ELVI" guitar. Dick Boak guides readers through the history and manufacture of each guitar, while providing quirky and amusing stories from behind the making of each signature model. New in paperback, Martin Guitar Masterpieces is a must-have for the legions of avid collectors and enthusiasts of Martin guitars.Biografía del autor:
