The second half of the book is a reference section that lists each Martin guitar style and gives information on how to date particular instruments. This is valuable, especially for collectors since on the early instruments only the cases were labeled and not the guitars themselves.
All in all I found the book interesting. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is since the book was published in 1995 Martin has come out with many special run guitars. Unfortunately they're not covered in this book. If you have even a passing interest in Martin guitars you'll find this book interesting.
I found the 'interruptions' with pictures of models and artists a bit annoying and a bit too brief. I would've liked to read more about important moments like the MTV unplugged series and the Eric Clapton signature models.
All in all definitely worth reading and having. I am looking forward to receiving and reading Richard Johnston's "Martin Guitars"
It was well received and the person receiving it says that it is very interesting.
The shipping was fast and the book arrived on time for Christmas.
It was well packed and exactly as described.
I would highly recommend the seller.
