Equally as nice is the number of quotes from Gibson employees who were in the authoritative position to comment on the history. Ted McCarty especially seems very open and candid. You really get the feeling for the blend of intense craftsmanship melded to very savvy business sense that made Gibson so great. Every design had a logic to it, but it was executed with master skill - and they weren't sentimental about any of their most beloved creations; for instance, axing the original Les Paul, or any number of hollow bodies that could stand on their own as works of art but simply didn't justify their existence with sales.
I wish I could give the production of the book the same rave review. However, the binding on mine was cheaper than a glossy brochure from a real estate company. Pages started to tear away just from the act of turning them (and I'm very careful with my books). This is a Hal Leonard book, and I think they just used the same method for binding that they use on their music-lesson books. It works fine for skinnier books. Or perhaps I just got a bad copy. But the CONTENTS deserve better - a hard cover too. I would decry the lack of color photography, but the center section of color photographs is so nicely done, that it makes up for it. And the B&W photography in the book body is always applicable to the content; so much so that as soon as I started reading about a guitar my eye automatically started to wander the surrounding pictures looking for the example. Plus, they printed a lot of nice advertisements at sizes big enough for you to easily read.
Now I'm off to find an ES-5 Switchmaster.
