Description du produit

Revue de presse

ALTERNATIVE PRESS
"A guitar nerd's dream, this art book features more than 700 photos of some of the most famous guitars in the world, including detailed histories of Eric Clapton's "Blackie," Stevie Ray Vaughn's "First Wife," and Neil Young's "Old Black." You're gonna have to win a lottery ticket or visit the Rock Hall to get a closer look than this."



Classic Rock Magazine, March 2011
“The term ‘handsome volume’ seems inadequate to describe the classiest and most luxurious example of full-on, hardcore guitar porn published since Billy F. Gibbons’s Rock + Roll Gearhead ...a powerful Exhibit-A argument in favour of actual physical-object type books. Even if every single word and image from Star Guitars was available online, you still wouldn't be getting the half of it.” (9 out of 10 stars)
PopMatters.com, January 2011
“This is a big, fat, beautiful book full of big, fat, beautiful guitars, as well as enough trivia and gossip to satisfy any rocker.”
Midwest Book Review, January 2011
“From famous guitars whose names are commonly known in the rock world to pioneers of playing, this provides a fine illustrated history of the guitars - and their stars. Star Guitars is presented by guitar type and packs in full-page color photos which are key to identification and appreciation.”
Guitar & Bass Magazine, February 2011
“Aside from being a thoroughly captivating read, it's fully stocked with superb photos, tour posters, and artwork, all adding colour to the tales of these glorified hitmakers...this is the ideal browser's companion. Dip in and out at your leisure."



GUITAR INTERNATIONAL
"The first thing that grabs you about Star Guitars is the book’s front cover cut out that frames the psychedelic Cream days axe of Eric Clapton, known as The Fool. Open the hardbound book and a colorful montage of album covers and posters featuring famous guitarists and their guitars gets the adrenaline pumping. Fortunately, Star Guitars delivers a page turner that’s impossible to put down."



EXAMINER.COM
"For hardcore shredders and the guitar novice alike, Star Guitars is a beautifully constructed, well-researched look at the tools that helped to create some of the most legendary songs ever put to tape."



BOOKVIEWS BY ALAN CARUBA
"Some books are just works of art in themselves. This is the case of Star Guitars...If there is someone you know who loves guitars, this one is a Christmas-keeper!"

Présentation de l'éditeur

These are the guitars so famous that their names are often household words: B. B. King’s Lucille, Eric Clapton’s Blackie, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s First Wife, Billy F Gibbons’ Pearly Gates, Neil Young’s Old Black, and many more. Here’s the first-ever illustrated history of the actual guitars of the stars that made the music.

            Other best-selling guitar histories look at the rank-and-file models, but this book is unique in profiling the actual “star guitars”—the million-dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock, which sold at Sotheby’s auction house in 1993 for $1,300,000. Amateurs buy guitars to emulate the stars—Clapton’s Strat, Slash’s Les Paul—and this book explains the stars’ modifications, thus showing how others can recreate those famous tones.

Par hervé j. COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEURTOP 50 COMMENTATEURS le 5 mai 2011
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Le postulat de ce livre: nous présenter 101 guitares qui ont rocké le monde. Tout d'abord, le livre est superbe, la couverture creusée en forme de Gibson SG fait apparaître la guitare psychédélique de Clapton peinte par the Fool imprimée sur la deuxième page. Les photos, d'époque ou actuelles sont très belles et certaines sont rarissimes.

La préface est de Billy Gibbons et c'est une bonne nouvelle, je ne savais pas que les texans savaient écrire. Par contre ce livre mériterait une édition française (même sous une forme moins luxueuse), car de nombreuses expressions typiquement américaines, voire certains mots d'argot sont difficilement compréhensibles avec le petit niveau d'anglais qui est le mien.

De Chet Atkins à Neil Young, les guitaristes sont présentés par ordre alphabétique, avec leur (ou leurs) guitare mythique respective. Très pointu au niveau lutherie, chaque chapitre est aussi très complet sur la personnalité et la carrière de chaque musicien. Ce livre est quand même très americano-américain, mettant en lumière une majorité de guitaristes du nouveau monde. La trilogie hard anglaise (Page, Blackmore, Lommi) est présente ainsi que les monstres sacrés (Clapton, Beck, Green), mais aussi Knopfler, Gilmour, Marvin (étrangement Alvin Lee est oublié). Les progueux seront déçus, pas de Steve Howe ou Robert Fripp et leur Gibson ES 175 ou LesPaul custom. Par contre, énormément de guitaristes de country et de blues (pas de Freddie King, oubli ou guitare trop peu remarquable ?

Le livre est d'une belle réalisation : couverture épaisse et découpée en façade, beau papier etc. Les modèles présentés sont volontairement variés : on ne voit pas que les incontournables Strato et Les Paul de Jimi et de Gibbons (elles y sont !). Les photos sympa, la sélection d'artiste éclectique, de Joe Strummer à BB King, en passant par Toni Iommi et Brian Setzer, permettent de découvrir des Gretch, des Jazzmaster, etc..
Quelques anecdotes rendent la lecture agréable.
A peu près tout ce qu'on peut attendre d'un tel livre : quelques manques, comme Steve Howe et sa mythique ES 175 (modèle pas véritablement représnet ici d'ailleurs).

Bel ouvrage en anglais.L'accent est mis sur les modèles Américains et passe sous silence des marques comme Ibanez ou Yamaha SG

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb Coverage of Most of the Greatest Guitarists & Their Guitars 4 septembre 2013
Par P. Jarosz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As everyone else has pretty much already said, the book contains superb coverage of most of the greatest guitarists and their guitars. Every time I turned the page, I would find myself smiling as another one popped up that I had hoped to see. Excellent photos and just-enough info on each one. If the author decides to release another edition, I suggest a few possible additions:

First, no surprise that the author included several of arguably the greatest guitar of all time - the legendary '58-'60 Gibson Les Paul Standard 'Burst.' The good news is there are 'Burst' photos of Michael Bloomfield, Billy Gibbons, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, and Peter Green (which was later owned by Gary Moore), but there were a number of omissions including perhaps the most famous 'Burst' - Jimmy Page's '59 (which was previously owned by Joe Walsh). I'd include a classic shot of Jimmy playing it with his violin bow. Although Keith Richards is already in the book for his Tele, he's credited as being the first star to play a 'Burst,' so why not mention it in his section and include a good photo? (Mick Taylor ended up with it next). There were numerous other stars who at one point in time played a 'Burst' e.g. Jeff Beck, Don Felder, Joe Perry, Steve Lukather, Martin Barre, etc. I understand you can't include them all and therefore you have to draw a line somewhere, but I would suggest adding the following dedicated 'Burst' players to the book: Paul Kossoff, Duane Allman, Gary Rossington, and Joe Bonamassa. That's quite a list of star power who played that amazing guitar. Yes, that's a lot of Bursts, but the book is about star guitars, so might as well include the best of the best.

Naturally Jimi Hendrix is already included in the book, but I would add a photo of him & his famous psychedelic Flying V which he personally painted and made into a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Not sure why the author chose to include Prince's Hohner Telecaster-copy. It's a nice guitar, but I still remember my jaw dropping when I saw his "Cloud" guitar which first showed up in the movie "Purple Rain." That is a beautiful one-of-a-kind custom guitar and would be my preference over the Hohner, along with his strange Prince-symbol-shaped guitar.

Finally, I would recommend a few others to consider adding: Randy Rhoads and his polka-dot Flying V, Paul Stanley & his iconic Iceman, Ace Frehley & his three-pickup Sunburst Les Paul, and Alex Lifeson & Geddy Lee (and their dueling double-necks). If there's any room left, I'd add Steve Howe, and possibly Marc Bolan & Tommy Bolin.

Overall, it's a fantastically enjoyable book for the guitar/guitarist aficionado.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 The book has wonderful pictures of these iconic guitars 23 juin 2015
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For some a guitar is more than a musical instrument. It's a companion, a voice of expression, a way to change the world around you. This book is about those guitars that created the sounds that we have heard for decades on the radio, on records, cassettes, eight tracks, CDs, and the guitarists that pulled those sounds out of these instruments. The book has wonderful pictures of these iconic guitars, accompanied by a short history of the guitarists and their axes. It's wonderful to see some of the instruments kept pristine, like BB King's Lucille, while others, like Rory Gallagher's Stratocaster, bear the scars of a million notes played on hundreds of stages. Regardless of your musical taste, these short stories give you an appreciation for these musicians and the guitars that made the sounds that made us dance, smile, bang our heads. or just enjoy in a smoky bar next to a juke box.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great gift for guitar players 3 février 2014
Par Rebecca Bergfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have purchased this book twice as a gift for guitar players. Both love it. I do not play a guitar myself, but even I found the descriptions of the specialized guitars interesting. (I secretly wanted one of the people who received it ask me to return it so I could keep it for myself!) I think it is well put together and even includes a guitar from Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel (Christopher guest). Dave Hunter has taken a lot of time to research a wide variety of guitars. The photos are excellent and each description includes information on the musician behind the guitar. I would highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Eye Candy... 5 janvier 2012
Par greenhornet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Eye candy galore for hapless guitar people... All the famous ones are here (SRV, Jimi, Beatles, etc.) and quite few surprises. I only wish that full colour shots of Lonnie Mack's V, Peter Buck's Ricky, and Roy's Nancy were included. But no Ike Turner? And I sure wish Ray Flacke's Tele was included (yeah, I know he sold it...). A few guitarists are included that I definitely am tired of seeing, and more specs would've been delightful, but all in all, a gorgeous book to look at... Great Christmas present!

Purchased this book for my brother for Christmas. It's an amazing book - even better than the description and the reviews. My brother was just amazed and very pleased.
