Most musicians are familiar with the famous Bigsby Vibrato, but not as many know about the wonderful Guitars that Paul Bigsby built in the 1940s.

Bigsby, who was responsible for developing and refining the pedal steel Guitar, also built the first modern solid body electric Guitar for Merle Travis in 1948, predating Leo Fender and Gibson's Les Paul by a number of years.

/>The Story of Paul Bigsby tells how Bigsby influenced Fender and Gibson, as well as a number of other Guitar manufacturers, in building techniques and design.
/>
/>This deluxe illustrated coffee table book contains over 300 colour and black & white photos.
