A great trip through the history of the electrified guitar. And some great info about magnetics and pickups in general including those who've contributed to making our guitars sound better.

The history, the how to. All in one book. If you are a techno compulsive like me, who has to know the how does about everything, then this is for you. Not a casual read, but important if you want to see how your guitar does what it does, and the path it took to get there.
