    The definative coffee table book on guitars, September 30, 2008

    This book is fantastic. I’ve been playing guitar on and off for 30 years and I have not seen a book like this. It’s informative, the pictures are very clear, for a book this size and it educates at the same time. I know more and remember more about the ancient and new guitars, artists and luithers than I did before I bought this book. I was disappointed at first by it’s size, but I realized later, it fits in your back pocket, so you can take it anywhere!

    An Brilliant Handy Reference for Guitar Fans, January 23, 2009

    This review is from: Guitars (Paperback)

    From the introduction:

    “Guitars: A Celebration of Pure Mojo features approximately 500 guitars. Its aim is not to place a figure on, qualify, or analyze, nor does it try to speak to the scholar, social historian, or dyed-in-the-wool collector. This is a celebration of the instrument – well-known instruments and forgotten instruments, milestone designs and dead-end experiments, ravishing beauties and instruments as bluntly functional as a hammer.”

    I’ve read many guitar books and the instruments that this book covers, in a small over 300 pages, is incredible – instruments I’ve not seen covered in other, larger publications. There is not a fantastic deal of text, but what there is is valuable – the essential details. Brilliant quality pictures for such a small format.

    Not for those who want to distinguish linking, say a ’54 and ’55 Stratocaster, but there are plenty of other books that try to do that.

    If you only want one guitar reference book buy this one! If you already have other books, buy this anyway! Its small enough to fit in your pocket on those trips to the flea market.
