"This book presents the three master guitar craftsmen, John D’Angelico, Jimmy D’Aquisto and John Monteleone, who each grew up in New York and were influenced by the master Cremona violin luthiers Antonio Stradivari, Giuseppe Guarneri and Andrea Amati. Author Rudy Pensa passionately traces these extraordinary handcrafted guitars from their lute predecessors to their current incarnations, which can fetch prices up to half a million dollars while commanding a 10-year waiting list."
This is the Deluxe Edition that comes with gold page lining and a collector's clamshell case.
