Pure pleasure for guitar lovers. Adapted from the lively and obsessive book, Guitars celebrates art and craftsmanship with a dozen historic and innovative instruments in full color. The calendars distinctive vertical format is designed to best display the guitars in their full beauty and sumptuous detail. Check out John and Georges pair of Gibson 160-Es, a ham-fisted acoustic-electric that they made famous. The original Martin OM-28, the players dream model, and its contemporary cousins. The bizarre Stroh, over-the-top Mosrite, and the iconic Les Paul— including his famous "log." Text and sidebars provide extensive information about the instruments, makers, players, styles, and musical milestones.
