    This book was recommended to me from a great guitarist who himself has used it until it's fallen apart! Has great fundamental info on guitar playing history, players of significance, guitar construction, basics on playing technique and music theory. It's very comprehensive, offering enough info to get you...

    going, if not whetting your appetite to look for more. Rated as beginner, but has info for players of all levels.
