What a lovely collection.

I read this as background for an exhibit we're planning for 2013 on guitars in the American West. I'm not a guitar player myself, so some of the technical jargon is lost on me, but this was still an entertaining read. Kellerman tells a lot of interesting stories about the guitars and their makers, and the photographs are stunning.

I wanted to read this for the curiosity-factor but this is a stunning book filled w/ gorgeous photos and the loving stories associated w/ each guitar in Kellerman's astonishing collection.

Interesting read and a great historical perspective into the makers of these guitars. The collection is overwhelming and I am jealous no less.
