From the Publisher
(Book). Electric Guitars and Basses tells the story in full color
of one of the most influential forces on American culture in the
20th century the electric guitar. From the earliest "lap steels"
that reshaped the sound of Hawaiian music, through the
"Spanish-neck" models that created a new voice in the jazz world
and powered the early rock and rollers, and on to the solidbody
models that shattered conventional ideas of guitar design and
guitar music, all of the classic and historically important models
are displayed and discussed by guitar experts George Gruhn and
Walter Carter. This new edition features an additional 16 pages of
important instruments and newly discovered information.
