The title is sort of self-explanatory, I hope, but because more is better. . .
I’m looking for the quintessential books on the history of electric and acoustic guitars as well as guitar amplifiers. Which titles are the go-to reference for Gibson, or Martin acoustics? Which book covers the Fender world of amplifiers and leaves no room for wanting more?
I’m a big fan of the YouTube channel 5 Watt World and their “Short History” series and I think that this is a rabbit hole I’d like to jump into.
I’m also interested in what I guess we could call the second tier of brands, for want of a better term, such as Gretsch, Rickenbacker, Danelectro, et al.
