For thirty-five years, bestselling author and accomplished musician Jonathan Kellerman has been, as he puts it in his Introduction to this lavishly illustrated endlessly fascinating volume, 'chasing fabulous sound.' The result of that quest is a world-class collection of guitars, mandolins, and other stringed instruments that number more than 120 . . . and counting.

Kellerman takes us on a fascinating guided tour through his magnificent collection, complete with rich personal histories of his favourite instruments and of the brilliant, often eccentric craftsmen and musicians who brought them to life. It is a record of one man's lifelong love affair with the guitar . . . and it is much, much more.

Whether writing about household names such as Fender, Gibson, Martin, and Dobro or about marques revered by aficionados - D'Angelico, Hauser, Fleta, Romanillos, Bouchet, Stromberg, and Torres - Kellerman brings to bear the same sure storytelling instincts and keen attention to detail that characterize his bestselling fiction, making each entry a sparkling mini-essay as much to be savoured as the sensual photographs that follow.

'Jonathan Kellerman has assembled a stellar cast of guitars that serves not only the history and craft of the great luthiers but also whets the appetite for all of us who are mad about guitars. Long may he collect.'

Andy Summers
