The Guitar Story is an in depth look of the evolution of the guitar, but it is not an attempt to include everything about the guitar or about every guitar ever made. This is the short story. It's just the most important stuff. I have stripped the fine print, educated guess work and in endless analysis down to the known facts. Its a fascinating look at the guitar craze from beginning to present day and even includes information about the varieties of modern guitars available, how they work and the specialty woods that are used in their construction. Also included are biographies of the greatest guitarists from Rock to Bach, electric, acoustic, classical, flamenco and finally a fun facts section as well. A fun read for all. You do not need to be a guitarist to appreciate and enjoy this book. It's an intriguing read for people interested in music history as well as a real page turner for current and future rock guitar gods. Included as well are some legendary and unforgettable stories that you will never forget.
