Generously illustrated with more than 150 photos of players, instruments, catalog pages and other memorabilia, this book features everything from the elegant American guitars of the 19th century to the evolving dreadnought, jumbo, 12-string, archtop resophonic and more - original instruments as well as contemporary incarnations and reissues. It spotlights the guitars of Leadbelly, Jimmie Rodgers, the Everly Brothers, Tony Rice, Emmylou Harris, Ben Harper and others. The collector's edition features the book in a classy, hard-back slip case.
