This follow-up to Acoustic Guitars And Other Fretted Instruments is a stunning full-color journey from the mid-1930s to the present, depicting the technical and aesthetic development of the American electric guitar - the Hawaiian, Spanish-neck, full-depth hollowbody, solidbody, and thinbody. This photographic history shows how major manufacturers such as Gibson, Fender, Rickenbacker, National, and others helped make the electric guitar an icon in pop culture and the dominant instrument in pop music.
