Working closely with Leo Fender, Smith spent several years in the 1980s testing and evaluating prototype guitars. He has collected original Fender guitars for 30 years and has amassed the world's most complete collection of historic Fender documents. Smith deserves much praise for making his book both a 'serious reference' and a 'coffee-table' book at the same time. The book has hundreds of photographs and illustrations but the text is anything but fluff. Smith does an excellent job of weaving the entire story of Fender into a very readable and chronologically accurate book.

+1 what the first reviewer said.

This is the root-book for Fender information. Its the one the others borrow from or use indirectly to help shape their perspective. It makes the guitar book output of Tony Bacon an insult to coffee tables everywhere. This author strikes the perfect balance between factual information, historical associations, and a very pointy humor that surfaces from time to time. THIS is the book to begin your study of Fender. Other model-specific books are good too, but this is the informative source. The root. You cant go wrong with this one.

Note: this latest edition comes with a DVD. Make sure you buy this version and not the first edition. Whats in the DVD? Well that would spoil your surprise. Hint: 'home movie'

Knights from Bernin
This is the most definitive book you'll ever read about Fender's history for a number of reasons. The author, Richard R. Smith, had the opportunity to know all of the principles personally and had the opportunity to interview them many times. Since all of those men have passed away, there will never be anyone else with that accessibility.

Add to that the fact that Smith was born & raised in Fender's hometown of Fullerton, CA., and you have a perspective that nobody else ever had or will ever have.

Mr. Smith deserves much praise for making his book both a 'serious reference' and a 'coffee-table' book at the same time. The book has hundreds of photographs and illustrations but the text is anything but fluff. Mr. Smith does an excellent job of weaving the entire story of Fender into a very readable and chronologically accurate book. He also had the advantage of using 'first-person' books written by Forrest White and other insiders as references.

The main movers and shakers of pre-CBS Fender, in addition to Leo himself, were Don Randall, George Fullerton, Freddy Tavares, and Forrest White. Smith knew every one of these men well and acquired a treasure of first-person information no other author will ever have and has to be complimented for his sense of objectivity throughout the narrative.

There are a lot of books written about the history of Fender and it's instruments but none have the substance of this one.

This book has to be the definitive story of Fender. I highly recommend it to any and all FenderHeads.

Saintrius
Well written book, learned many interesting points of the history that's missing from other books covering Leo's inventions.

Anayalore
Great book with alot of insight on the behind the scenes stuff going on at fender at the time. I enjoy it very much, and glad i added it to my coffee table book collection.

Darkraven
Well researched and well written. High quality heavy glossy paper with high grade print. Excellent photos. If you're interested in the history of Fender, this is the book to get.

Deodorant for your language
One of the best books on this subject. A must for any Fender lover's library.

Gavinrage
Perhaps the best overall book written, to date, regarding Fender.

Excellent summary of Fender guitars
