Library Journal Review

A newly revised and updated edition of a popular title, this book clearly explains buying, maintaining, and enjoying a new or used acoustic guitar. Sandberg (The Folk Music Sourcebook) covers different guitar woods and how they sound, what to expect from a music dealer, choosing an instrument based on playing style, simple guitar maintenance, and the mystique of vintage collectible guitars. The ranks of acoustic guitar players are steadily growing, but this does not offer enough new material to justify a purchase if the 1991 edition is already in your collection. (c) Copyright 2010.
