Guitar, the shape of sound, 100 iconic designs / by Ultan Guilfoyle.

Guilfoyle, Ultan, (author.).


"The guitar is the iconic instrument at the heart of all popular music. From Delta blues on acoustics to electric rock & roll, and all that came in its wake, the guitar has proven the most versatile and emotive conduit for musical expression and experimentation. Across more than 300 years, master guitar-makers have striven continually for new sculptural and aural peaks, yet the guitar's immediacy and intimacy endures, however loud the volume controls on the amplifiers are turned. A delight for design enthusiasts and music aficionados alike, this authoritative book charts the development of this pillar of popular music and the charismatic performers who have used the guitar to transform our lives."--Back cover.
