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 traces these handcrafted guitars from their lute predecessors to their current incarnations. Archtop Guitars presents the stories behind these instruments against the photography of the guitars taken by Vincent J. Ricardel.

This is a very heavy and expensive book that was produced in conjunction with an exhibition called “Archtop Guitars: The Journey from Cremona to New York.” For once, I wanted words, but this one is all about images. It’s too late to ask for a refund!
