Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This thorough and abundantly illustrated history contains alphabetically arranged entries on important guitar builders and companies. Classical builders are not included because "their traditions, aesthetics, and clientele all exist somewhat apart from the world of steel-strings and electric guitars and basses"--from the author's introduction. The new edition presents several dozen newcomers and updates others while preserving most of the original edition intact. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
