  This is a bibliography of where I got all the vintage guitar information (and some pictures) compiled in this internet site. I have been collecting vintage guitars on and off for about 20 years. So my experience is inserted in all of the sections, in addition to the book sources. But no matter how much experience one has, there is always more that can be learned. Hence these books were instrumental in developing this vintage guitar site.
  Any book with one star is a decent book. Those books with two star I would highly recommend. Books with are the best available! Books with no stars are not very good, but may be the only source of information available for that subject.
