Abstract:

"The Gibson electric guitar book presents the definitive story of Gibson's electric guitars over the last 70 years. Since the 1930s, Gibson electric guitars have been embedded in our culture as some of the most recognizable icons of jazz, blues, and rock'n'roll music." "The body shapes of the Gibson Les Paul, ES-335, SG, Flying V, and Firebird are as familiar as the artists who played them - from Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery, to Chuck Berry and B.B. King, through to Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Frank Zappa, and Bob Marley. Today, Gibson electric guitars are as popular as ever among young musicians seeking the sound that only a Gibson can provide." "Walter Carter is an acknowledged expert on the history of Gibson, and his new book documents the past and the present of these prestigious guitars through a wealth of detailed research and an unsurpassed collection of superb photographs." "As well as the full story of Gibson electrics, the book includes meticulous listings for the player and collector, detailing every Gibson electric guitar model from 1937 to the present day."--Jacket.
