Have you ever had a “bucket list” of guitars and gear that you’ve always wanted to try out? Well, here’s a way to create a year’s worth, the new book 365 Guitars Amps & Effects You Must Play, by Dave Hunter.
Classics, oddities, rarities and more are included here, such as the great Fender guitars, the Stratocaster and Telecaster, and the stylish Gibson Les Paul. Included as well are the dream creations-masterpieces from D'Angelico and Gretsch. And then there are the weird guitars-the outrageous, rare, and so-strange-they're-cool, and your beloved childhood guitar that you first learned on. Included as well are the guitar amps, from vintage to current, rare to essential, plus the stompboxes, foot pedals, and guitar effects that you simply have to take for a ride.
Each instrument is profiled along with a short description of its history, technical features, and what it's like to play. Photographs and rare memorabilia add the crowning touch, making this the perfect impulse buy or giftbook for any and all guitarists.
