Description by OLDIES.com:

With more highly skilled luthiers at work than ever before, ours is a golden age of the electric guitar. Presenting superbly crafted electric guitars as fine art, this beautifully photographed book gives 125 master luthiers from 15 countries the spotlight--artisans who have custom-built instruments for the likes of Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Steve Miller, Billy F. Gibbons, George Benson, Kirk Hammett, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. From the invention of the electric guitar in the 1930s to its development in the 1960s to present-day innovations, Electrified is a lovingly detailed look at these beautifully produced instruments . . . and the talented people who make them. Robert Shaw's engaging and informative text offers richly detailed portraits of these modern master builders and is complemented by more than 250 color photos of their jaw-dropping work, many of them reproduced full-page. All but a handful of the guitars in the book have been built within the last five years, so it offers a spectacular overview of the current state of the art. Electrified is a must-have for every guitarist.
