Don't buy this book unless you are sure it comes with the Sampler CD. The CD is quite amazing and has some tracks that can be used as audiophile-level references. These guitars don't just look great - apparently, they sound great too!

This is one great book. Fabulous design (odd shape) with extraordinary examples of guitars built and designed by one of the most talented and creative luthiers ever. Danny Ferrington builds wonderful instruments. World-class musicians play them. Here you get to see AND HEAR (with the included CD, which you can't live without) some of Danny's most beautiful creations made specifically for some of the world's best players. The disc includes recordings of the players that the guitars were built for playing the instruments displayed in the book (my personal favorites include David Hidalgo, Ry Cooder, and Richard Thompson). Any guitar lover will cherish this exceptional treasure...now, just try to find one of the collector's batch which include a tweed "guitar" case made to form fit the book!!! WOW!

I recently started to learn the art of making guitars and I was told that this book would be a good source of inspiration. That's just it! A very good source for unconventional guitar making. It will open your eyes as to what is possible, both aesthetically and functionally. Plus, it makes for a good coffee table book.

This book is a must-have for any guitar player. Ferrington made custom acoustic and electric guitars for many of the premier musicians of the boomer genration - from Bonny Rait to Los Lobos. The book is visually stunning; moreover, the cover incorporates a cd of various artists playing songs on the very guitars he made for them. The cd alone is worth the price of admission.

Format: Hardcover
Terrific coffee table book featuring unusual guitars from luthier-to-the-stars Danny Ferrington. Ferrington's work is about 180 degrees from the traditional approach of luthiers such as William Cumpiano. On most acoustic guitars Ferrington's method of neck-to-body attachment is via four bolts a la Fender electric guitars. The best thing about this book is the delightful smorgasbord of shapes, colors and sizes of Ferrington's guitars. As an amateur luthier I never tire of leafing through the book as it is so stimulating to the imagination. The photos are very well done, with many nice close-ups of design features or hardware. There is a 6-page montage of Ferrington's construction methods but this is not really a book on lutherie methods.

The book gives a great history of the guitars and the artists that play them. I would highly recommend that you make sure you get the CD with the book. While some of the tracks do not seem long enough, leaves you wanting to hear more, it is great to hear the different tones styles of play. I would recommend this to any music/music history lover.
