Never before have so many guitars been profiled within a single illustrated volume. 1001 Guitars To Dream Of Playing Before You Die showcases the greatest instruments from across the globe: some are of historical or cultural significance and some were made famous by well-known musicians; others are included as examples of technological breakthroughs, innovative design or extraordinary sound quality.

From the earliest models produced by Belchior Dias in the sixteenth century to the latest Gibson "Robot" series of guitars with computer-controlled self-tuning capabilities and onboard sound-processing features, 1001 Guitars To Dream Of Playing Before You Die tells the fascinating stories behind the creation of each one. A striking colour photograph of each guitar is accompanied by specification details and illuminating text that traces the guitar's history and reveals which famous musicians like to play the instrument and on what albums it can be heard.

Chronologically structured, this visually stunning reference will enable you to trace the evolution of the guitar in sound and design and observe how and why it has altered over time. It is certain to be essential reading for guitar aficionados, guitar players and all those with an affection for this influential, beautiful and diverse instrument.
