Series: Reference Publisher: Centerstream Publications Format: Softcover Author: Frank Meyers

Many guitar players, famous and not so famous, began playing on Japanese electric guitars, yet the history of the people and factories that produced these instruments has remained largely ignored. For the first time in this illustrated history, author Frank Meyers will examine the Japanese electric guitars and factories that were active during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, identifying the various people, companies, and guitars that contributed to the huge guitar boom of the 1960s. Includes hundreds of fantastic color photographs, a chapter on 130 pickups, and a chapter on collecting vintage Japanese guitars. A must have for book collectors.
