Good coffee table addition.Just what it professes to be...good for casual collectors, less so if you want a very detailed, specific book about guitars. I liked the format as well as the pictures. Not for the hard core...mostly entertainmentRick Wise. San Diego

if you are truly a person that loves guitars and the music that comes from them . you need to have this book. I thought as fan of guitar I might place this book on the coffee table to have too look at ever now and than. Once i open the book couldn't take my hands off for 4 days . Just keep going thru the collection that these people had and just couldn't but it down.

This book has beautiful photographs and good narrative discussing each guitar. It is of high quality, well put together and has gold leaf on the page edges which adds to it's nice design. I bought this for my husband and he loves it. This book is great for any guitar lover and would look great on a coffee table.

Bought it as a gift for my husband. He absolutely loves it. He's a guitar history buff and loved reminiscing and looking through the pics and articles.

Nice in-depth look into some great guitars.Very well written with great photography.The "caretakers" of these instruments were very kind to open up for these interviews and photo sessions,

My daughter gave this to her guitar loving dad and it was a BIG hit. We really couldn't get his attention the rest of Christmas morning! The book is nice to hold, beautiful pictures with nice write ups. Thank you!

It is very well produced. It's not five star because some of the guitar collections, in the beginning of the book, have been featured in the magazine already. Feel this is a bit of a 'cheat' since the recipient has already read mags cover to cover and keeps them all. Other than that, certainly worth the price.

This book is beautiful! Well written with stunning photographs of some of the iconic guitars of our time. I bought it as a Christmaspresent for my nephew who is learning to play and is constantly looking at guitars on his computer... I can't wait to see his facewhen he gets it. Not to nitpick but what is up with the section on James Hetfield? There are two pages of text devoted to hislove of custom automobiles and barely any mention of the guitars on display in the book. I for one would have loved to hearthe story behind the guitars. Other than that, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the six-string!
