OMG... I just pre-ordered this new book by Tony Bacon concerning our favorite Gibson guitar. How many posts have we read, bewailing the fact that Gibson's best selling guitar does not have a book dedicated to the best electric guitar ever made... Well, who knows what this will be like, but I have some of Tony Bacon's other books and I like his writing style, and I like the illustrations he gets, so I'm putting my money up and ordering this book. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/14..._m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0TMTQJA40AGYJ34MD7AY If you like guitar books, I suggest you do the same. We've all been wanting something like this. Paul Balmer's book of a few years ago was okay, the illustrations are the best part. Balmer writes for people who need to learn how to work on their guitars, so this one is recommended highly to many of our posters here. http://www.amazon.com/Gibson-SG-Manual-Includes-Epiphone/dp/0857332899 Balmer likes Epiphone guitars, and talks about them without cork sniffing prejudice, which lots of our members will appreciate. I have this book and recommend it.
