The History Of The American Guitar.

Year: 2001

Condition: Very Good. Very clean. Dust jacket Fine.

Pages: 148.

Size: 325mm x260mm

Description:Hard bound 2001 edition with Dust Jacket. Out of print but this is one of the best guitar books I have ever seen. It's a classic and if you can not afford the Scott Chinery Collection Book then this is the next best because it is a very similar book by the same author. Yes the famous Guitar Author Tony Bacon. The only reason the Scott Chinery Collection book costs so much more is because there were only about 6,000 copies produced. But just like that great book, this book has 148 big pages full of guitars from 1833 to 2001. Many of the pages also fold out to give you an even bigger and better photos of some of the worlds most famous and finest guitars. One of the best known collection in the world belonged to Scott Chinery and this book will give you a great insight into that famous collection.
