Recommended Gibson Guitar Books
We all know that when dealing with high priced guitars new or used , old or vintage, its a dirty market , if you dont know much about guitars you can easily get burnt . I learned the hard way, 15 years ago I decided to collect only gibson guitars , as you can see im a big fan .
Ive seen the good the bad and the ugly , there are many dishonest collectors who take advantage of naive musicians who are not to familiar with the vintage market , and as for new guitars its even worst .
Salesmen in music stores love when they know you have no knowledge of guitars because they can push you the junk that has been sitting in their store for years for higher commissions .
Here are some great gibson guitar books that I can reccomend with my outmost confidence because ive actually read them . If your a gibson lover and you want to know everything there is to know about gibson guitars , these guitar books pretty much cover everything .
You'll be able to buy or sell new , or vintage gibson guitars with confidence and nobody will take you for a ride . You can probably buy these books at your local music store or better yet you can buy them from amazon with a click of a button ( free shipping if you buy 2 ).
