Check out The Dream Factory, a new book by Tom Wheeler 12-Oct-11
The Dream Factory by Tom Wheeler is the behind-the-scenes story of the Fender Custom Shop, one of the music industry's most creative and prolific custom instrument shops.
Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of color photographs of incredibly rare, collectible, and limited-edition handcrafted guitars, The Dream Factory also features interviews with the shop's founders, most of the first-generation Master Builders, and all of the current Master Builders, as well as graphic artists, woodcarvers, jewelers, pinstripers, graffiti artists, pearl-inlay specialists and others who contribute in the creation of the custom shop guitars.
ZZ Top guitarist Billy F Gibbons has written the foreword for the book and has this to say,
"In order to make vintage for tomorrow, you got to make it good today,the Fender Custom Shop has seen fit to ensure that what reaches your hands is certain to satisfy." Pricing and Availability:
