This compelling autobiography of guitar icon Bill Carson is a fascinating first-person chronicle by a man deeply involved in all facets of the Fender story. Carson recounts everything from his early years as an impoverished guitarist to his days serving as "test pilot" of solidbody instruments, including the legendary Stratocaster. He shares his experiences of working closely with Leo Fender, George Fullerton, and the factory workers who produced some of guitardom's truly classic instruments. Carson's conversational tone takes the reader through the good times and bad at Fender, including the decline of the company and its products during the infamous CBS years, on through its remarkable resurgence and return to dominance. 112 pages, 3" x 91"
