Publisher Comments:

For thirty-five years, bestselling author and accomplished musician Jonathan Kellerman has been, as he puts it in his Introduction to this lavishly illustrated, endlessly fascinating volume, “chasing fabulous sound.” The result of that quest is a world-class collection of guitars, mandolins, and other stringed instruments that number more than 120 . . . and counting.

Kellerman takes us on a fascinating guided tour through his collection, complete with rich personal histories of his favorite instruments and of the brilliant, often eccentric craftsmen and musicians who brought them to life. It is a record of one mans lifelong love affair with the guitar . . . and it is much, much more.

Whether writing about household names such as Fender, Gibson, Martin, and Dobro or about marques revered by aficionados-DAngelico, Hauser, Stromberg, and Torres-Kellerman brings to bear the same sure storytelling instincts and keen attention to detail that characterize his bestselling fiction, making each entry a sparkling mini-essay as much to be savored as the sensual photographs that follow.

Your fingers wont be walking through With Strings Attached. Theyll be strumming. Picking. Stroking.

And dancing.

Synopsis:

In this sumptuously illustrated coffee table book, "New York Times" bestselling author Kellerman shares photos and stories of his incredible, world-renowned collection of rare guitars. Rich with personal account of how he acquired the treasures, the text anecdotally documents Kellerman's love affair with the guitar.

What a good idea. Kellerman's depiction of a violin making girl friend in his Alex Delaware books has whet the appetite for years.

Excellent pictures and this book truly is a history of guitars within one man's personal collection. I previously saw some examples of his collection in a guitar magazine and saw impecible examples of vintage instruments - now we can see them up close and with greater detail.
