New title sheds light on guitar design
A new title from leading British guitar expert Tony Bacon is due to hit UK shops in time for the Christmas market. Electric Guitars: Design And Invention, from Backbeat Books, explores if it is possible to do truly new work, or whether everything has been done before, and offers a unique view of both the vintage and the modern world of the electric guitar, Backbeat says.
‘Pairing an absorbing story with a remarkable set of photographs and memorabilia, the book considers influential ideas such as the 80s movement toward high-performance superstrats by makers such as Jackson, Kramer, and Ibanez, and covers guitar designs that came and went as fashions changed, like the German carve and the guitar synthesizer. The reader will find out why the Telecaster, the Les Paul, the Stratocaster, and the ES-335 became so influential, and why these creations have lasted so long’.
