The Story of Paul Bigsby - Limited Edition by : Andy Babiuk
Most musicians are familiar with the famous Bigsby Vibrato; but not as many know about the wonderful guitars that Paul Bigsby built in the 1940s. Bigsby; who was responsible for developing and refining the pedal steel guitar; also built the first modern solid body electric guitar for Merle Travis in 1948; predating Leo Fender and Gibson's Les Paul by a number of years.
The Story of Paul A. Bigsby tells how Bigsby influenced Fender and Gibson; as well as a number of other guitar manufacturers; in building techniques and design. This deluxe illustrated coffee table book contains over 300 color and black & white photos. Many of these have not previously been published; and over 50 are actual Bigsby instrument photos taken by fine arts photographer Greg Morgan. The book also comes with an audio CD of Paul Bigsby; recorded in the late 1950s; telling stories of his business.
