Famous Frets Fotos Vol 1

Code: 978-1-915246-56-1
Publication date 16th August 2024.
In his first book Famous Frets Steve Clarke took a forensic deep dive into many famous guitars with detailed specifications of their construction with supporting photographs.
This book Famous Frets Fotos is volume one in a series of two, where Clarke focuses on the images of the guitars rather than the very detailed approach as used in the first book.
As part of Clarke’s role as a guitar consultant, he is often invited to view a single guitar or, as was the case with Peter Green and KK Downing, entire collections to assess, and in some instances repair guitars in a very short time.
So deep dives are not always possible. With the Peter Green collection Steve looked at one hundred and fifty guitars and banjos, 4-string Turkish lutes, amps and mandolins! That collection was so large it was located across two sites in London and Oxford.
Steve did however manage to take more intricate details on a few of the most known guitars, some from his Splinter group period.
Having been so lucky to have had such opportunities. For Steve there were a number of ‘pinch me’ moments, for example looking at the Graffiti Yellow Strat owned by Jeff Beck.
Now guitar lovers can also get to view many of the guitars that Steve has been fortunate enough to be able to photograph in the course of his work.
Paperback: 297 x 210 mm, 128pp. Illustrated throughout.
