really liked it
bookshelves: music, non-fiction

A good present for people into music and obviously, instruments.

It showcases the instruments of many awesome alternative rock musicians
such as Stephen Malkmus, Sonic Youth, Bon Iver, Ian Curtis (who has a really cool amp) and a whole lot more.

The writing that goes with the photos can be interesting (providing that the person who wrote it wasn't completely lazy- Jeff Tweedy from Wilco gave one word answers for instance)

It is a pretty good gift book, the only drawback being that some instruments photographed are only partially photographed, this not always being useful despite artistic intentions, for example, Kim Deal's bass only has two photos which are blurred and zoomed in on just one part of the guitar.. which was kind of disappointing..

Apart from that, this is a pretty solid book that fans of indie rock will like
