Amplified : a design history of the electric guitar / Paul Atkinson.


An in-depth look at the invention and development of the electric guitar, this book explores how the electric guitar's design has changed and what its design over the years has meant for its sound. A heavily illustrated history with amps turned up to eleven, Amplified celebrates this beloved instrument and reveals how it has evolved through the experiments of amateur makers and part-time tinkerers. Digging deep into archives and featuring new interviews with makers and players, it will find admirers in all shredders, luthiers, and fans of electric sound.
