by Allen St. John

What does it take to make a great guitar? This is the question that animates Allen St. John as he watches Wayne Henderson, “Stradivari in glue-stained blue jeans,” use little more than a sharp whittling knife and carefully chosen wood to make a guitar that justifies a 10 year waiting list.

The book offers a glimpse into the connection between Clapton and the instrument he plays, and will also appeal to anyone who appreciates the opportunity to learn from a master guitar maker practicing his craft.
