Moderne Guitar

The Holy Grail of Vintage Guitars
by Ronald Lynn Wood

Because of their very limited production and forward design, Modernes are highly sought by collectors. Here is the story, explained in interviews and photos, of this curious development associated with the golden era of guitar making. Full color throughout!

Music Man

1972-1982 The Other Side of the Story
by Frank Green
Music Man was like a brilliant comet of music-driven energy and technical innovation launched by the veteran team of Leo Fender, Forrest White, and Tom Walker the Chief Pilot/Navigator.
Music historians have given these three industry pioneers each their own label. Leo Fender was the front runner and the 'founding father', Forrest White was in the 'right place at the right time', and Tom Walker was the 'genius' in the designs and improvements he master minded for guitar and bass amplification. Music Man was Walker's inspiration!
