This review is from: The Dream Factory: Fender Custom Shop (Hardcover)
You don't find easily a product so well made. This book is a gem! Of course you have to be interested in the subject, but this is clear enough. You have to love guitars and you have to love Fender. But if this is your ballpark, well this book is a musthave. Get it while it's still printed in the hard cover version. Because the quality of the book in itself (without talking about the contents) is terrific! It is arrived in a enormous bag of the US Postal Service (I live in Italy), so big it seemed the Santa Claus bag! But when I opened the box, the book that came out literally blew my mind. It has a really hard slip cover that is almost a box, the hard cover of the book is printed in a fantastic way, with the pictures of the guitars (on the front cover) that jump out of the black background. Pay attention because this book is BIG, it is incredibly long just if you want to take a first look at it, not to say if you want to read it. Just to look at the hundreds wonderful colour pictures you can spend hours!! And if you want to read it, it will be your bed book for an antire season! The pictures are wonderful, nothing less, on that quality paper the guitars seem to be alive in your hands! There are all the show guitars, all the custom shop guitars, interviews with the master builders, everything. You will take a long ride inside the shop of the most creative group of builders around. It is a breathtaking ride! Believe me, it is an object that will give value to your Fender custom shop guitar if you own one. And more than anything else, it is a book that makes you want to pick up your instrument and play. Which is the most important thing. Beautiful, splendid, a work of art, a fantastic tribute to this gems Leo invented more than 60 years ago and that still amaze us. Long Live Fender!
