Book/CD pack. Swedish immigrants Carl and August Larson made instruments under the brand names of Maurer, Prairie State, Euphonon, W.J. Dyer & Bro., Wm. C. Stahl, WLS, and their own name, and their highly collectible creations are some of the finest ever made. Lovingly researched and written by the grandson of Carl Larson, this updated edition contains a wealth of information: the stories behind each brand name, serial numbers, construction techniques, lots more; reprints of classic advertisements and catalogs, historical photos, tons of photos of guitars, mandolins, ukuleles and harp guitars, plus 32 pages of full-color photos! The 31 track CD features 11 artists (Muriel Anderson, Stephen Bennett, Stacy Hobbs, even Jimi Hendrix!) plus a mandolin orchestra playing Larsons instruments.
