4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book, more Kalamazoo content needed! (for me), 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Epiphone Guitar Book, the: A Complete History of Epiphone Guitars (Paperback)
If you already have the 1995 Walter Carter Epiphone book, you may not need this, and may want to browse through it before buying. I expected something more expanded on each chapter of Epi's history, with more detail on the crucial Kalamazoo period. Of this, there is no real new info, and I would like to see every model covered in text and pictorially, not just the same guitars we've seen in other books. I'm sure you know the stuff I wanted to see, the progression from using "New York" pickups and parts, through to all Gibson sourced items, and more on the Beat group and Beatle instruments and their strong cultural influence. More detail. More, more, more. Production totals and insider factory info would also have been interesting; who made them within Gibson? Who designed the new models? Did they have a separate production line? The rest of the book is well written, as Walter Carter is a good music writer, and the layouts are good, if not pin sharp (which in 2013 they should be). It covers all Epiphones, from all eras, which is good. If you don't have an Epiphone book, its a good read. If you need more on the Gibson-made Epi's, join the queue here. It may be a long wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Basses Please!, 6 Sep 2013
This review is from: Epiphone Guitar Book, the: A Complete History of Epiphone Guitars (Paperback)
Although this manual contains as much information on the guitar side of Epiphone production as most collectors and fans will need , it contains minimal space to its basses. ( four or five pictures at most! ) The reference section at the back of the book is one of the best i have seen in this type of volume. The amount of information concerning it's basses suggests that a companion volume for four-stringers would be a welcome addition.

For people like me who have a collection of Epiphone guitars a comprehensive history. Does need updating though with the more modern instruments.
