Gibson Guitars: Ted McCarty's Golden Era is a long overdue book that covers the world's greatest period of guitar manufacturing. As CEO of Gibson Guitars from 1948 to 1966, Ted McCarty presided over the production of nearly one million instruments and amplifiers. 1950s Gibson Les Paul Standards, Flying Vs, Explorers, and ES-335s are considered to be some of the most valuable fretted musical instruments in the world.
This book is Ted McCarty's first and only complete biography, and a book that gives us a glimpse into a golden era of his factory and his loyal employees who made some of the world's most desirable guitars. It features over 100 photographs, some from Ted's personal archives and never before published.
"Ted McCarty was the architect of a Golden period in Gibson's history. During his 18-year tenure, he helped to reestablish the company's historic leadership in the industry through a number of musical innovations that still resonate today." Gibson Chairman and CEO Henry E. Juszkiewicz

Comments about Hal Leonard Gibson Guitars Ted McCarty's Golden Era 1948-1966 Book:
I read the book, I played the riffs. This book is easy to learn if you're either an intermediate, professional, or a starter. I really recommend this book to anyone who likes Gibson guitars, or just guitar. This book has also showed me some history guitars that I was very naive about. The archival photos are fanatic; the origins of the guitars are incredible, too. Please at least take a look at this biography/riff/picture book. In my opinion, it�ۡ���s quite worth it.
