This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Celebrate the significance, the magic, and the mojo of the world's most seductive instrument.

An obsessive, full-color book presented in an irresistible slipcase, Guitar features 200 instruments in stunning detail. Here are icons, like Prince's Yellow Cloud, Willie Nelson's "Trigger," Muddy Water's Thunderbird, and "Rocky," lovingly hand-painted by its owner, George Harrison. Historic instruments-Fender's Broadcaster, Les Paul's "Log," the Gibson Nick Lucas Special, the very first artist model. Hand-carved archtops, pinnacles of the luthier's art, from John D'Angelico to Ken Parker. Stunning acoustics from a new wave of women builders, like Rosie Heydenrych of England, who's known to use 5,000-year-old wood retrieved from a peat bog. And quirky one-of-a-kind guitars, like Linda Manzer's Pikasso II-four necks, 42 strings, and a thousand pounds of pressure.

Marrying pure visual pleasure with layers of information, Guitar is a glorious gift for every guitar-lover
