Présentation de l'éditeur

The First Paperback Edition of The Definitive Reference Work On The Guitar, And The Most Beautiful Book On The Subject Ever Produced

"When you get right down to it, these guitars represent something uniquely American . . . You're transported to a place where it's always Saturday night in the summertime, a place where cars are fast and girls are pretty. And when you pull into the parking lot and cut the engine, you can hear the music and know that everybody's inside, twisting the night away." --David Nicholson, Washington Post Book World

A stunning visual guide to the history and development of this instrument -featuring specially commissioned photographs of famous, rare, and vintage guitars, from the earliest acoustics to the latest electrics. Packed with construction and design information, and with detailed, informative profiles on everything from the legendary (Martin, Gibson, Fender) to the weird, the exotic, and the oddball (Burns, Hagstrom, Danelectro, to name a few), The Ultimate Guitar Book brings each instrument to life and makes immensely pleasurable browsing for players and collectors alike, from beginner to professional. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

HASH(0x8bd8ef24) étoiles sur 5 A joy to read and look at. 4 avril 2002
Par Francois Leblanc - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I bought this book because I liked the first part of "The Complete Guitarist" book where the history and dissection of the guitar is shown.
This book is full of pictures and descriptions of a lot of guitars. The book is divided by guitar type, from acoustic, archtop, solid-body electics, semi-solid electrics and basses. The descrptions are short and give way to the pictures, but the guitars that demand, by respect, more description are given more pages.
The guitars shown are from all over the world and thus aren't limited to a specific market. Its cool to see how a russian guitar is made.
The only thing I would have liked is a timeline, but the book isn't formatted this way and its fine.
All in all a very fun book to have. No theory, nothing to tell you "practice damn it!", just enjoy.

If you were to never read one word of the text of Mr. Bacon's fine book, it would still be worth the cost. Encased between the two covers are some of the finest photos of guitars you'll ever lay your eyes on. Not only are there pictures of your "standard" American-made guitars (Fender, Gibson, Rickenbacker), but also "axes" from around the world. Bacon has also included some interesting and unusual guitars as well. This is a book that you will go back to over-and-over; it's that interesting.

HASH(0x8b51b168) étoiles sur 5 Excellent book on all types of guitars!! 30 novembre 2004
Par Martin J. Macary - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Tony Bacon's book "The Ultimate Guitar Book" goes into detail about acoustic, solidbody and bass guitars and is full of great pictures of all types. The book starts out with a hitory of the guitar from the 16th and 17th centuries and how it developed to it's current form.

The acoustic guitar section begins with the anatomy of the acoustic guitar and some basic terminology. The chapter progresses through classical guitar builders Antonio De Torres and discusses the styles of classical and flamenco guitar. The Martin guitar company's guitars are discussed next with a discussion of the various body sizes, inlays and production dates. The chapter continues with D'Angelico, D'Aquisto, Epiphone, Gibson's archtops and flattops and Ovation guitars. The chapter finishes up with resonators and lap and pedal steels.

The electric section starts with the earlist pioneers of amplified guitars like the Rickenbacker "Frying Pan" and the Les Paul "Log". The Fender Telecaster, Stratocaster and various Fenders are covered along with Gibsons Les Pauls, Flying V's, Rickenbackers and various American and European guitars.

This book is a great starting point for reference and research but is only a starting point. There are many other books devoted to single models such as the Les Paul and Stratocaaster that one book could not possibly cover everything. Well worth the price espcially for all of the wonderful pictures.

HASH(0x8b51b798) étoiles sur 5 Outstanding!!! It's the ultimate guitar book 20 mars 1999

Format: Broché
I've read and reread this book countless times. The details in construction techniques of the various classes of guitars from the Archtops to the Solid Bodies, are very well ilistrated and the text is unambiguous, without being patronizing. I would highly recomend it as an addition to auy music lovers library. -Jose' Torres Jr.-

The pictures are beautiful.
I was hoping for a bit more detailed history on all the instruments, but it does provide a good overview of the history.
The high quality pictures are a sight to behold. This is a great coffee table book.
