You know Dave Hunter from the pages of Vintage Guitar. Now you can join him as he traces Fender’s entire history to the present.

All the innovations and landmark models are here, as well as legendary players who became synonymous with Fender instruments across musical genres. Authoritatively written and lavishly illustrated, Fender 75 Years is the officially licensed anniversary celebration of the company and its legendary instruments.

Format: Hardback, 352 Pages
Illustrations: color photos
Size: 9.25 in x 8.27 in / 234.95 mm x 210.06 mm
ISBN: 9780785838326
$19.97

First published in 2010, expanded in 2017, and now available in a sleek paper-over-board format, Ultimate Star Guitars is the first illustrated history of iconic guitars and their owners—featuring more than 140 guitars and 120 guitarists in all!

Where other best-selling guitar histories look at the rank-and-file models, Ultimate Star Guitars is unique in profiling the specific favorites of famous players—oftentimes million-dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock and which sold at Sotheby's in 1993 for $1.3 million. Among the stars and their guitars:

  • Kurt Cobain: 1969 Competition Series Fender Mustang
  • B. B. King: Gibson "Lucille"
  • Prince: Hohner HG490
  • Edward Van Halen: "Frankenstrat"
  • Neil Young: 1953 Gibson Les Paul "Old Black"

From twangy country to scorching metal, from full-throttle punk to sophisticated jazz, and from gut-punch blues to lo-fi indie rock, Ultimate Star Guitars is illustrated with performance and candid photography of the artists with their star guitars, relevant memorabilia, and more often than not, studio shots of the guitars or signature models based on them. It's an information-packed visual feast for guitar enthusiasts!
