Dangerous curves : the art of the guitar by Darcy Kuronen( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dangerous Curves presents 400 years of guitar design and history, from ornamental Italian and French models of the seventeenth century to the five-neck electric used by the hard-rock band Cheap Trick. The 180 full-color photographs by Carl Tremblay show this most versatile and enduring of musical instruments in all its shapes, sizes, and mutations: jazz behemoths to minimalist "sticks": guitars shaped like bells, frying pans, rocket ships, Cubist sculptures, and functioning crutches: guitars made of chrome steel, aluminum, plastic, graphite, and fiberglass: guitars that stand on pedestals, sit on laps, fit into backpacks, or inflate." "The book features 110 such guitars, each accompanied by a brief discussion of its history and manufacture, while the introductory essay by music historian and guitarist Lenny Kaye places the guitar in context as one of the most potent cultural icons of our time. Included throughout are comments - a number of them written specifically for this book - by some two dozen notable modern guitarists, including Julian Bream, Bonnie Raitt, Pete Townshend, Lucinda Williams, Adrien Belew, Ani DiFranco, and Leo Kottke, which provide a more personal view of the guitar and its music." "Published in conjunction with a major exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Dangerous Curves is an essential work for anyone who has ever experienced the insistent, sometimes troubling, always powerful seduction of a beautifully fashioned and well-played guitar."--Jacket
