Foreword by James Dean Bradfield, Manic Street Preachers

A collection that has to be seen to be believed, Superstar Guitars is an up-close and personal look at dozens of the most famous guitars in the history of music.

Photographer Eleanor Jane has travelled the world, tracking down the six-strings that were used and loved by some of the greatest musicians ever known to create their most celebrated music. The Stratocaster on which Bob Dylan ‘went electric’. The Mustang Kurt Cobain played in the ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ video. Keith Richard’s Exile on Main St. Les Paul Burst, and many more besides.

Housed in a stunning package including a hardback slipcase, detailed photography explores every inch of these special, one-of-a-kind instruments, accompanied by fascinating text telling the story and explaining the feel of these unique guitars.
