For those who have enjoyed The music of Steve Howe, whether in the group YES, ASIA,GTR, or His many solo works, this book is a real treat. Steve shares his many stories of Guitar collecting in depth. Reading these stories are infectious and entertaining. It is hard to put this book down after reading it. The pictures are beautiful, The guitarist is excellent, and the book is worth every Dollar.

Superb book on the Steve Howe guitar collection. I find this book very insightful regarding Steve`s tastes in guitars and the instruments he chooses (and displays in this book) for recording purposes.
I couldn`t help but notice another review on this page in which the author trys to belittle the talents of Mr. Howe. He likes the book but not the guitarist? The pundit in question must not be a guitarist......

I just got to say that this book is very nice. It has lots of pictures of Steve's guitars, especially his modified Gibson Les Paul Custom with four humbucking pickups. I borrowed this book from the library years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately for this reviewer, it seems to him that he has no sense of sensitivity in respects of diversely talented musicians and he seems to forget that this book is all about Steve's large collection finest instruments. This book is not meant for those who have little respect for music or well-known human musicians like Steve Howe. This book is for those who have deep respect for musicians of all diversities. Steve Howe is a very good guitarist in his own right and a naturally unique human individual for all I can say!
Oh yeah one more thing, who says that Steve's guitar playing is soulless compare to other guitarists?
That is nonsense! Every guitarist is unique, period!

This is probably the single best book about the beauty of guitars that is around. Really you dont even have to appreciate Steve Howe to appreciate the incredible guitars in this book. Most importantly it reflects upon a time where luthiers and real artists made instruments. When you see these incredible instruments and compare them to the garbage that Gibson and Fender are putting out now its really just an amazing condemnation of what guitar making has sunk to. So many incredible pictures and as a bonus Steve Howe fans will find real nice insights into the instruments and a guy who is easily one of the most amazing guitar players ever to walk the earth.
