9781495001505: The Bass Book: A Complete Illustrated History of Bass Guitars Updated Edition

(Book). In California in the early '50s, the Fender company introduced the world's first electric bass guitar. They couldn't have known known it then, but the Precision Bass would start a revolution in the sound of popular music. This book explains how that revolution happened and how its reverberations are still felt today. The two-guitars-bass-and-drums lineup that would define pop music found its heart with the Fender bass. In the coming decades, the bass guitar provided the solid foundation upon which much modern music is still built. The Bass Book is the first to study its story, with the full lowdown of the most important bass players and bass makers. Brands featured in the book include Alembic, Danelectro, Epiphone, Fender, Fodera, Gibson, Hofner, Ibanez, Lakland, Line 6, Music Man, Peavey, Rickenbacker, Sadowsky, Spector, Squier, Steinberger, Wal, Warwick, and Yamaha. Original interviews with makers of bass guitars from the past and present illuminate the book, with the popular establishment of the bass during the '60s and '70s examined in detail, along with more recent developments such as the popularity of the five-string bass. There is an exclusive interview with Paul McCartney and other bassists who feature in the story, including Stanley Clarke, Flea, James Jamerson, Jaco Pastorius, and Robert Trujillo. Dozens of unusual, desirable, and rarely seen basses are presented in high-quality photos. A reference section provides a wealth of information on the key makers. The Bass Book has all you need to know about the story of the bass guitar in one stylish, readable volume, and this revised and refreshed third edition brings the story right up to date.

From the Back Cover:

In California in the early 1950s the Fender company introduced the world's first electric bass guitar, and started a revolution in the sound of popular music. The 'guitar bass and drums' line-up that would define pop music had found its heart, and for the next 40 years the bass guitar provided the solid foundation upon which most modern music was built. The bass guitar is without doubt one of the most significant new musical instruments to have appeared in this century, and The Bass Book is the first to study its complete and fascinating story. Many original interviews with makers of bass guitars from the past and present illuminate The Bass Book, and while the popular establishment of the bass during the 1960s and 1970s is examined in detail, modern variations of this diverse instrument are also presented. Dozens of unusual, desirable and rarely seen basses are shown in specially commissioned studio-quality photographs, including instruments owned by Paul McCartney, Stanley Clarke, and John Entwistle, and a reference section provides a wealth of information on every notable maker.
