Guitar: An American Life

$27.73

by Tim Brookes 

The author of this book, NPR commentator Tim Brookes, centers his book on a custom instrument he commissioned from our friend, Vermont luthier Rick Davis (Running Dog guitars). He took final delivery of the guitar in the LMI sales room, following the 2003 Healdsburg Guitar Festival, and it was evident to everyone there how much the guitar meant to him. Tim's excitement about his new instrument is the prime motivation for this beautifully written and researched foray into the history and lore of the guitar -and America's special love affair with it. What begins as a simple need to replace an old guitar with a new one, opens into a richly entertaining journey that will be of interest to just about anyone.
