Overview

This book pays tribute to Gibson's magnificent Sunburst Les Pauls made between 1958 and 1960, the most highly prized solidbody electric guitars ever. The magnitude of their value is directly related to their look (outrageous wood patterns, or "figured" timber), since non-players are paying top dollar for them. The book features lavish full-color photos of these beautiful instruments throughout; the guitars of famous players including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Billy Gibbons; a foreword by Ted McCarty; and a bio of the author, world renowned collector Yasuhiko Iwanade. This may be the closest guitarists will ever be able to get to these incredibly collectible beauties!
