Cool bookstore find

Not sure if this is old news. I found this awesome Ibanez book at the used bookstore yesterday. Tons of Ibanez info from beginning to present. Very cool stories of how Vai and Satriani became endorsees along with others, tons of pics, a history of models to the present ('13). Only a very small mention of the J Customs though and missing the VSK in the JEM listings. Here's a few pics.

I'd never seen this book before. It's very cool. Who published it? I'd like to get a copy too....

Nice! I didn't know this existed. I have the "Untold story of Ibanez" or whatever it's called coffee table book, but more reading material would be awesome! Thanks for sharing the find!

Yep, bought it from Amazon literally seconds after reading this thread. The untold story is a great book as well.

The people at Amazon are going to be wondering what's up with the sudden surge in sale of this book..........LOL.

I'd like to know more about the author too- I would find it hard to believe that he's not, or never has been a member here.

I have a couple of Les Paul books he wrote (or co-wrote) as well. Generally pretty palatable reads. Strikes the right balance between total nerd level info vs. stuff for people who are fans but not full on guitar anthropologists.
