Here we are, the new book. Well, not entirely new, it still has nearly all the content that was in the original "Wood Sweat and Tears" - history, stories, artists, gossip, lots and lots of background and explanation, with a heavy emphasis on pictures of the more unusual and exotic instruments. All of that has been edited and compressed, with lots of extra stories added, more intros from artists and friends, more of my
thoughts on wood and guitar making, a lot more special guitars and some photo essays about certain projects. It now has 73,000 words, 500 full colour photographs and 290 pages. That is nearly twice as much content as the original.
It has a hard cover with dust jacket, 300mm x 245mm, but even thicker and heavier than the first edition.
