Famous models of electric guitar such as the Fender Stratocaster or Gibson Les Paul are not only icons of 20th century design but, for millions of musicians and music fans, powerful objects of desire. Focusing on the American manufacturers that have led the development of the instrument, this highly illustrated volume traces its evolution from the early Hawaiian prototypes of the 1930s to the classic models developed and refined from the 1950s to the 1970s.
