Me and the V

I had a nice surprise in the mailbox this morning. The new Tony Bacon book arrived. It's all about the development and use of the Flying V, Explorer and Firebird guitars in rock.

Tony is renowned for his guitar books and I've been helping him with some of my early memories about me and the V. There are lots of good anecdotes by myself and others concerning these once oddball guitars by Gibson and others which have now become mainstream. Special mention is also made of the Royale and Case models I use.

All in all an interesting read for guitar aficionados, with some great close - ups of the instruments plus archival shots.
