Get to know the guitars so famous that their names are household words among enthusiasts. First published in 2010, the first-ever illustrated history of the specific guitars of the men and women who made the music is now expanded to include 32 additional iconic guitars and their owners. Ultimate Star Guitars showcases B.B. King';s "Lucille," Eric Clapton's "Blackie," Stevie Ray Vaughan's "First Wife," Billy F Gibbons's "Pearly Gates," Neil Young's "Old Black," and dozens upon dozens more. Other best-selling guitar histories look at the rank-and-file models, but Ultimate Star Guitars is unique in profiling the specific favorites of famous players - oftentimes million-dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock and which sold at Sotheby's in 1993 for $1.3 million. Guitar journalist Dave Hunter explains the stories behind each: the important sessions on which they were used, landmark tours and gigs on which they were played, modifications made by their owners, and more. From twangy country to scorching metal, from full-throttle punk to sophisticated jazz, and from gut-punch blues to lo-fi indie rock, Ultimate Star Guitars is illustrated with performance and candid photography of the artists with their star guitars, relevant memorabilia, and more often than not, studio shots of the guitars or signature models based on them. An information-packed visual feast for guitar enthusiasts!

More astounding stories of rare guitar finds and the music legends who owned them. Do you dream of finding a 1954 Stratocaster or 1952 Gibson Les Paul online, at a garage sale, or in the local penny saver? How about virtually rubbing elbows with one of your favorite rock legends? Following up his first-of-its-kind The Strat in the Attic, musician, journalist, and "guitarchaeologist" Deke Dickerson shares the stories behind dozens of more astounding finds including: A rarer-than-hens-teeth 1966 Hallmark Swept-Wing that originally belonged to Robbie Krieger of the Doors, stashed away in an attic in Alaska for forty years! A crazy-valuable 1958 Gibson Flying V belonging to a Chicago bluesman--who, it turns out, also happens to have an equally rare 1958 Gibson Explorer! An out-of-the-blue, a "to whom it may concern" email leads the author to a trailer park in Salem, Oregon, where one of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys' original 1940's Epiphone Emperor archtops is waiting to be purchased for a song! Luthier R.C. Allen relates the tales of buying Nat "King" Cole Trio guitarist Oscar Moore's Stromberg Master 400 archtop and of being gifted a 1953 Standel amp from Merle Travis! Buddy Merrill, the amazingly talented guitarist from the Lawrence Welk show, gives his 1970 Micro-Frets Huntington to the author, but only if he "promises to PRACTICE." Photos of the guitars and other exciting memorabilia round out a package that no vintage-guitar aficionado will want to be without! "Deke Dickerson's love for guitars and his genius for finding some of the rarest birds in the musical aviary is matched by his not-inconsiderable writing chops. The man knows how to tell a great story." --Jonathan Kellerman

Beautifully details the guitars played by all the greats—Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Kurt Cobain, Jack White, Lemmy, Maybelle Carter, Thurston Moore, Emmylou Harris, Bo Diddley, and many more What is it about the Gibson Les Paul, the Fender Stratocaster, the Martin D-28s, the Höfner violin bass, or any of the other electric or acoustic masterpieces that has made them such icons of the 20th century? It is not just because these guitars are great works of art, but above all because they gave music, whether rock, folk, or blues, that special something extra—a unique way of hitting or holding a note, a particular tone created by the shape of a guitar’s neck or body, its pickups, its very structure.
