I bought the new book The Birth Of Loud its kind of a combined biography of Fender Les Paul and Bigsby with history of how electric guitars were developed. A fair amount of focus too on different other artists and how this whole amped up sound became so popular. I like the writing and the approach. Les Paul apparently not the most honest person ever. Bigsby had first real guitar apparently. Im maybe a third through i recommend the book its more enjoyable than i would have guessed.
