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 in this illustrated history, author Frank Meyers will examine the Japanese electric guitars and factories that were active during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, identifying the various people, companies, and guitars that contributed to the huge guitar boom of the 1960s. Includes hundreds of fantastic colour photographs, a chapter on 130 pickups, and a chapter on collecting vintage Japanese guitars. A must have for book collectors.
About the Author
Frank Meyers has been playing, repairing, studying, collecting and researching guitars since the 1990s. His passion for guitars was ignited with his first electric guitar, a 1963 Japanese Fujigen EJ2. Since then, he has documented the stories and histories of hundreds of other early bizarre, off-brand guitars, has written numerous articles for publications (including Premier Guitar and Japanese Music Trades) and his own website www.DrowninginGuitars.com. Frank lives with his family in the rolling hills of Eastern Pennsylvania.
