Overview

Finally, the long-awaited English-language edition of this historic Japanese book is here! The Beauty of the 'Burst by Yasuhiko Iwanade pays tribute to Gibson's magnificent Sunburst Les Paul guitars made between 1958 and 1960, the most highly prized solidbody electric guitars ever. The magnitude of their value is directly related to their look (outrageous wood patterns or figured timber), since even non-players are paying top dollar for them! The book is packed with lavish full-color photos of these beautiful electric guitars; the guitars of famous players; a foreword by Ted McCarty; a bio of the author, world-renowned collector Yasuhiko Iwanade; and the "Science of the Burst" section with over thirty pages of detailed reference facts on every facet of the Les Paul guitar, including colors, wood figures, pickups, hardware, and tonal qualities. Get close to these incredibly collectible beauties!
