If you are into coffee table books full of guitar pr0n--make that FAMOUS guitar pr0n--then this is the book for you. Most of the iconic guitars of the past 75 years are covered here.

I won this book as a GoodReads First Read. It is amazing. It's a perfect coffee table book for any guitar lover.

this is a beautiful, fun book. great photography and creative layouts. i got this with my husband in mind, who recently started playing the guitar.
Fun book. Pearly Gates remains my favorite. :)
The axes of the rock gods in all their glory. Loved the read and was engrossed with the images.
