Summary

These are the guitars so famous that their names are often household words: B. B. King's Lucille, Eric Clapton's Blackie, Stevie Ray Vaughan's First Wife, Billy F Gibbons' Pearly Gates, Neil Young's Old Black, and many more. Here's the first ever illustrated history of the actual guitars of the stars that made the music. Other best selling guitar histories look at the rank and file models, but this book is unique in profiling the actual star guitars”-the million dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock, which sold at Sotheby's auction house in 1993 for $1,300,000. Amateurs buy guitars to emulate the stars-Clapton's Strat, Slash's Les Paul-and this book explains the stars' modifications, thus showing how others can recreate those famous tones.
