Carter Vintage Guitars
For a limited time only, The Guitar Collection includes UPS Ground shipping!
The ultimate guitar book, with 150 important instruments photographed in detail. Text written by Walter Carter. Comes with a companion book that provides more detailed information on all the guitars. In a hardshell case.
For the first time ever, the world's most elite guitars are presented together in this collector’s limited edition. Years in the making, and featuring high-definition, state-of-the-art original digital photography throughout, The Guitar Collection is part music documentary and part photographic odyssey.
Because of the size and volume of pages, the leather-bound Guitar Collection had to be printed by one of the few companies in the world capable of making a book this size. The sleek custom-made leather case that houses this epic book is secured with satin nickel latches, while its interior is lined with luxury fabric. Also housed within the case is a richly produced companion book, The Guitar Collection: Stories, a certificate of authenticity, and one of three museum-quality prints signed by photographer John Peden.
The Guitar Collection is a limited edition. Only 1,500 hand-numbered English-language copies of this edition will be available.
Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Billy Gibbons, and Keith Richards are but a few of the guitar legends who agreed to have their guitars included in this high-end limited edition book. The collection also features guitars from heralded institutions including Experience Music Project, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Hard Rock International, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. To capture each guitar “on location,” a group of three preeminent photographers traveled to over 40 locations in North America and the UK.
