Fender Amp Heaven!,
This review is from: The Soul of Tone: Celebrating 60 Years of Fender Amps (Book & CD) (Hardcover)
I also own the Stratocaster 50th anniversary tome by Tom Wheeler so I had a feeling this would be good. However, it is much more than good, it is superb. It fact, it is rated so highly that Fender USA have now renamed the reissue amp section of their website The Soul Of Tone with a reference to the book shown alongside the classic models they sell.
If you play guitar and have ever wonderered why virtually every recorded guitar sounds the way it does, this gives you the history of how Leo Fender invented the classics and then the likes of Marshall, Mesa Boogie and others started with Leo's designs and modified them to their own requirements.
You also get two CD's of sound-bites of classic amps matched with Tele's, Strat's and Lesters so if you've ever wonderered how a Tele through a blackface Vibrolux sounds, and how different it is to a Tele through a blackface Deluxe Reverb, then it's all here.
An absolutely stunning book for any guitar player!
