Burst Believers VI

"The Final Encore"
by Vic DaPra and David Plues
The Gibson Les Paul Standard 1958-1960 is one of the greatest designs to emerge from Gibson. Revered by the great players of our generation, the tone and quality of these instruments has never been surpassed. The older generation of players such as Clapton, Page, Beck and Bloomfield created the sound palette which would be further developed by Slash and Joe Walsh. Today, players such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Tom Bukovac, and Keith Urban are picking up the challenge and embracing the Burst. This edition contains many new Bursts to the series plus new photos of some of the great guitars featured in earlier editions. With vibrant hi-res photographs we have worked with the publisher and printer to create a stunning final edition. The Les Paul Standard continues to excite players worldwide and Gibson continues to produce new models based on the near-perfect original design.

C.F. Martin & His Guitars, 1796-1873

by Philip F. Gura
The Martin is considered the finest acoustic guitar in the world, a distinction it has held for more the 160 years. Philip Gura Chronicles the career of Christian Frederick Martin from his humble start as an importer and repairman of musical instruments in New York City in the 1830s through his move to Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and the founding of C.F. Martin & Company. Gura is the first historian to throughly study the Martin company records dating back to the 1830s. Using this rich archive, he establishes how a German immigrant from Saxony's guild tradition became the finest American guitar maker of his time. The many sketches and hundreds of photographs illustrate how Martin adapted his artisanal craft to modern industrial methods. Includes an 80-page color section!

Celtic Cittern

by Doc Rossi
Although the cittern has a history spanning 500 years and several countries, like its cousin the Irish bouzouki, it is a relative newcomer to contemporary traditional music. Doc Rossi, a well-known citternist in both traditional and early music, has created this book for intermediate to advanced players who want to improve their technique, develop ideas and learn new repertoire. Guitarists can play all of the tunes in this book on the guitar by tuning C F C G C F, low to high, and putting a capo at the second fret. The lowest line in the tablature then corresponds to the fifth string. The CD features all the tunes played at a medium tempo.
