    Invaluable Resource

    All of us that enjoy guitars and guitar music have a special affection for our instruments. We love `em, collect `em, play `em, and even sometimes rebuild and/or customize these unique musical objects. A guitar is far more than just a piece of wood with a little metal, plastic, paint, and strings attached. Our guitars occupy a special place in the hearts and minds of so many of us. Guitars are not just instruments, many have become investments. The bible and value guide for all guitar collectors is the Blue Book of Electric Guitars by the Fjestads. My copy is invaluable and yours will be too. Play, enjoy, collect, and above all else ¿ keep on rockin'!

    For the guitar lover

    This book is a must have for all electric guitar lovers from novice to collector. It features basic information on thousands of brands of guitars. In the day of ebay-ing this book will give the buyer enough information to know the value of the item(s) being auctioned. The pricing model suggested is helpful, but not to be taken the final word. The book has a ton of pictures which is also very helpful.
