From the same team who created "The Fender Stratocaster Chronicles" comes a book about the other side of Fender's legacy, the instrument amplifier. Revered as much as one's guitar, the Fender amplifier gets its due in his full colour richly illustrated book. It features over 400 images including legendary guitarists such as Eric Clapton, BB King, Neil Young, Pete Townshend, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Muddy Waters and Dick Dale and two CDs featuring over 120 tracks that make terms and topics come alive.

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!
the detail in this book is testimony to leo fenders dedication to just that end ,,uncoditional
commitment to musicians and listeners pleasure ,a catalogue of ingenious application ,
god bless leo fender, and tom wheeler for the insight he has shared in this publication.
This book makes you think about matching a guitar with an amp.
The two CD's are good especially CD 2 Modern as it contains interviews with the people that built developed the instruments. I now want a Fender Vibroverb 63 Reissue if anyone has one for sale do get in touch.
An absolute joy. Maybe £25 seems a lot, but it's the price of a take-out curry for two. It might last a bit longer too - like forever. I'll be into this book for many years to come, it's glorious.
Initially I thought it was unnecessary seeing as I have the excellent Leonard Teagle book, but it's a different approach to the subject and there is definitely room for both to sit together and compliment each other. Having both won't make one redundant.
Trouble is, I just have to get the Stratocaster book now.
What I really want though is a Telecaster version, so I'm hoping that's a work in progress.
