History of Japanese Electric Guitars
by Frank Meyers
Many guitar players, famous and not so famous, began playing on Japanese electric guitars, yet the history of the people and factories that produced these instruments has remained largely ignored. For the first time author Frank Meyers examines the Japanese electric guitars and factories that were active during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, identifying the people, companies, and guitars that contributed to the guitar boom of the 1960s. Includes hundreds of color photographs, a chapter on 130 pickups, collecting vintage Japanese guitars, more. A must have for collectors. 173 pp.
