"A guitar nerd's dream, this art book features more than 700 photos of some of the most famous guitars in the world, including detailed histories of Eric Clapton's "Blackie," Stevie Ray Vaughn's "First Wife," and Neil Young's "Old Black." You're gonna have to win a lottery ticket or visit the Rock Hall to get a closer look than this."

Classic Rock Magazine, March 2011
“The term ‘handsome volume’ seems inadequate to describe the classiest and most luxurious example of full-on, hardcore guitar porn published since Billy F. Gibbons’s Rock + Roll Gearhead ...a powerful Exhibit-A argument in favour of actual physical-object type books. Even if every single word and image from Star Guitars was available online, you still wouldn't be getting the half of it.” (9 out of 10 stars), January 2011
“This is a big, fat, beautiful book full of big, fat, beautiful guitars, as well as enough trivia and gossip to satisfy any rocker.”
Midwest Book Review, January 2011
“From famous guitars whose names are commonly known in the rock world to pioneers of playing, this provides a fine illustrated history of the guitars - and their stars. Star Guitars is presented by guitar type and packs in full-page color photos which are key to identification and appreciation.”
Guitar & Bass Magazine, February 2011
“Aside from being a thoroughly captivating read, it's fully stocked with superb photos, tour posters, and artwork, all adding colour to the tales of these glorified hitmakers...this is the ideal browser's companion. Dip in and out at your leisure."

"The first thing that grabs you about Star Guitars is the book’s front cover cut out that frames the psychedelic Cream days axe of Eric Clapton, known as The Fool. Open the hardbound book and a colorful montage of album covers and posters featuring famous guitarists and their guitars gets the adrenaline pumping. Fortunately, Star Guitars delivers a page turner that’s impossible to put down."

"For hardcore shredders and the guitar novice alike, Star Guitars is a beautifully constructed, well-researched look at the tools that helped to create some of the most legendary songs ever put to tape."

"Some books are just works of art in themselves. This is the case of Star Guitars...If there is someone you know who loves guitars, this one is a Christmas-keeper!"


These are the guitars so famous that their names are often household words: B. B. King’s Lucille, Eric Clapton’s Blackie, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s First Wife, Billy F Gibbons’ Pearly Gates, Neil Young’s Old Black, and many more. Here’s the first-ever illustrated history of the actual guitars of the stars that made the music.

            Other best-selling guitar histories look at the rank-and-file models, but this book is unique in profiling the actual “star guitars”—the million-dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock, which sold at Sotheby’s auction house in 1993 for $1,300,000. Amateurs buy guitars to emulate the stars—Clapton’s Strat, Slash’s Les Paul—and this book explains the stars’ modifications, thus showing how others can recreate those famous tones.

Von six strings and more TOP 500 REZENSENT

Star Guitars:
Dieses Buch spricht erfreulicherweise nicht nur reine Gitarristen an, sondern liefert zu jedem Instrument auch Informationen über den Künstler, dies in einem richtig recherchierten geschichtlichen Kontext sowie den "Werdegang" des Instrumentes bis zum heutigen Tag.

Die Aufnahmen der Instrumente, sei es im Studio oder auf der Bühne sind sehr gut und abwechslungsreich. Abwechlungsreich: Hier wurden keine zig Instrumente in einer Fotobox abfotografiert!

Der reduzierte Preis von Amazon war ein weiteres Kaufargument, ähnliche Bildbände aus Zeitabschnitten der Musik, insbesondere Rockmusik kommen oft bedeutend teurer.

Hat man Star Guitar erst einmal durchgearbeitet ist man in der Lage sowohl über die Instrumente wie auch die prägenden Künstler einiges an Zusatzinformationen abzurufen.

Fazit: Sehr zu empfehlen!

The hard cover looks very nice and the content tells more than I expect. This is not at all boring to read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Riveting 19. September 2011
Von Jeff Consoer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you're into guitar history, this book is great. From the title of the book, I thought it would be kind of a fluffy overview, a review of "guitar gods and their axes". Not so. Dave Hunter put a lot of thought into who he presents, and with which guitars, going all the way from Robert Johnson to the Carter Family to Van Halen. It's a heckuva tour. He even mentions amps where appropriate.
I bought this book used (and cheap) from Amazon Marketplace. My expectation was I'd read through it and then give it away. Nope. I'm keeping this one. After a prolonged residence on the coffee table, it's taking up permanent residence in my study.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eye Candy... 5. Januar 2012
Von greenhornet - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Eye candy galore for hapless guitar people... All the famous ones are here (SRV, Jimi, Beatles, etc.) and quite few surprises. I only wish that full colour shots of Lonnie Mack's V, Peter Buck's Ricky, and Roy's Nancy were included. But no Ike Turner? And I sure wish Ray Flacke's Tele was included (yeah, I know he sold it...). A few guitarists are included that I definitely am tired of seeing, and more specs would've been delightful, but all in all, a gorgeous book to look at... Great Christmas present!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb Coverage of Most of the Greatest Guitarists & Their Guitars 4. September 2013
Von P. Jarosz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As everyone else has pretty much already said, the book contains superb coverage of most of the greatest guitarists and their guitars. Every time I turned the page, I would find myself smiling as another one popped up that I had hoped to see. Excellent photos and just-enough info on each one. If the author decides to release another edition, I suggest a few possible additions:

First, no surprise that the author included several of arguably the greatest guitar of all time - the legendary '58-'60 Gibson Les Paul Standard 'Burst.' The good news is there are 'Burst' photos of Michael Bloomfield, Billy Gibbons, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, and Peter Green (which was later owned by Gary Moore), but there were a number of omissions including perhaps the most famous 'Burst' - Jimmy Page's '59 (which was previously owned by Joe Walsh). I'd include a classic shot of Jimmy playing it with his violin bow. Although Keith Richards is already in the book for his Tele, he's credited as being the first star to play a 'Burst,' so why not mention it in his section and include a good photo? (Mick Taylor ended up with it next). There were numerous other stars who at one point in time played a 'Burst' e.g. Jeff Beck, Don Felder, Joe Perry, Steve Lukather, Martin Barre, etc. I understand you can't include them all and therefore you have to draw a line somewhere, but I would suggest adding the following dedicated 'Burst' players to the book: Paul Kossoff, Duane Allman, Gary Rossington, and Joe Bonamassa. That's quite a list of star power who played that amazing guitar. Yes, that's a lot of Bursts, but the book is about star guitars, so might as well include the best of the best.

Naturally Jimi Hendrix is already included in the book, but I would add a photo of him & his famous psychedelic Flying V which he personally painted and made into a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Not sure why the author chose to include Prince's Hohner Telecaster-copy. It's a nice guitar, but I still remember my jaw dropping when I saw his "Cloud" guitar which first showed up in the movie "Purple Rain." That is a beautiful one-of-a-kind custom guitar and would be my preference over the Hohner, along with his strange Prince-symbol-shaped guitar.

Finally, I would recommend a few others to consider adding: Randy Rhoads and his polka-dot Flying V, Paul Stanley & his iconic Iceman, Ace Frehley & his three-pickup Sunburst Les Paul, and Alex Lifeson & Geddy Lee (and their dueling double-necks). If there's any room left, I'd add Steve Howe, and possibly Marc Bolan & Tommy Bolin.

Overall, it's a fantastically enjoyable book for the guitar/guitarist aficionado.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Star guitars 21. September 2012
Von UP Wanderer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Not a musician but an avid listener - especially of guitar greats. Wonderful book describing guitars of artists I know well, artists I've heard of and some that were new to me. Types of guitars, modifications, style and preferences were detailed along with good photos. Great book to leave lying around as it was very easy to read one or two sections whenever I had a minute.
