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.

Following on the success of his 2005 bestseller Hot Rod Pin-ups, ace photographer David Perry offers an all-new collection of images winningly riffing on the timeless theme of girls ’n’ cars—specifically, girls ‘n’ hot rods. In the garage, on the road, at the race, these sumptuous pictures by the acknowledged master of contemporary hot rod pin-up photography recall classic 1950s illustrators like Vargas and Elvgren. But the beauties in Perry’s photographs have been transported to--and, it seems, transported by--the cluttered chop shops, deafening drag strips, and dusty highways that hot rods call home. Sharing top billing are the cars of many of today’s top builders, as well as painstakingly perfect wardrobes and settings. Essays by male and female stars of the hot rod world round out this delightful book.
