Guitars is an excellent book about guitars. It works well as a buyer’s guide, but it also includes lots of information about the history of the guitar, guitar maintenance, pedals, amps, how to play the guitar, and more. The author knows the topic well and it’s obvious he has many years of experience with buying and selling guitars. He covers the types of wood used to build guitars and what each type is best for, the types of guitars and the sounds they’re best for, guitar neck shapes, what to look for when buying a guitar, what to avoid, and a lot more.
There is a lot of fascinating information here. It covers a wide range of information with the main points we need to know. I’ve been playing since the early 80s and he was able to mention a couple of brands I’ve never heard of. I love the design of the book. I read it on PC and Fire 10, and it has lots of full-color photos, colored backgrounds that highlight the text, single and double-column layouts, graphics, and charts. It’s always readable and navigation is clear and simple.
This is one of those books that I not only want to read but want to have handy for reference. If you’re interested in learning how to buy and sell guitars and want a book that provides a lot of good information along the way, Guitars by Brad Trivett is a great choice.
