Scott gave me a first run limited edition copy of this book in early 1997. He was a personal aquaintance. The book is a masterpiece to own and treasure. It will take your breath away!

Fond Memories Jan. 15 2006
By Loaded-Diaper - Published on Amazon.com
I had first heard that Scott was going to release his collection in book form 6-7 years before it actually happened. I have to say that when it actually arrived, I wasn't disappointed. I went to the book signing at Mandolin Brothers. Scott and I talked at length about our passion for guitars. He actually let me play a few of his vintage pieces including a 19th century Martin. He signed my book, we took a few pictures together, & he invited me to his museum. If you are at all a fan of great guitars, this book is for you. It's got examples from past to present, sublime and far out, or just plain stunning like the D'Angelico Teardrop of which I have also played. The book just leaves me speechless. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves guitars. I was saddened to hear of Scott's passing, but having this book brings back the great time I had with him. Scott was a great guy.

Beyond BEYOND Book!!! Dec 10 2009
By volcanic pirate - Published on Amazon.com
The most important book ever on American Guitars, this book is truly THE history of American Guitars. All of the guitars shown in this book are beyond compare - they all set the standard for all of our guitar paradigms. As a kid i was just mesmerized by watching George Harrison ripping effortlessly unbelievable riffs on his Grestch-ky. From that day, I became an incurable guitar-holic. Every guitar shown in this priceless book is historically significant and the pictures are just orgasmic. In our world, it is truly the people & personalities we remember the best - and all of the legendary builders are here in this book. Heaven for myself sits on my bookshelf in a slipcase! Thank You Mr. Chinery, you have given the guitar world a blessing from above, Aloha!
