Deke Dickerson take you on a journey to uncover hidden vintage guitar gems through a series of essays. Each essay tells the tale of yet another guitar “find”. In truth, flipping to the next essay sometimes seemed as exiting as finding these six-string discovery one’s self; turning each page being somewhat akin to digging for an unknown treasure in the forgotten attic or that old music storage location. Dickerson unfolds these stories in a reminiscent narrative, probably not unlike the doze [...]

Guitar geeks rejoiceAn interesting collection of guitar archeology full of stories of detective work that would make Matlock proud. The history of the guitar builders who built these words of art and the virtuous legends as well as virtual unknowns who played them makes for a great read for the guitar geek.

I'm just starting to learn guitar and I really enjoyed this book. It's a collection of essays about rare, vintage guitars almost lost to time and ledgend somehow found and enjoyed again. You can really feel the excitement and passion people have for their instruments or ones they wish they owned.

One for the guitar nerd but, if you are so inclined (and I am) it's a great read. This book does pretty much what it says on the cover; these are stories of rare guitar discoveries and they're all fascinating. The author has collected up a series of stories, including several of his own, that details some of the great guitar finds of recent years, along with some terrific photos and various examples of supporting provenance.The guitars featured here are not just the usual Fender and Gibson model [...]

The Strat in the Attic is a fascinating collection of stories about tracking down and finding rare, sometimes historically significant guitars. There's music history, instrument-invention and manufacturing history, some behind-the-scenes peeks at the music industry, and a bit of Deke Dickerson's autobiography as a musician and guitar nerd. Dickerson's writing gets better as the book moves along. The final chapter, in which Deke manages to hunt down and acquire not one but THREE Bigsby guitars, i [...]

I only give a book five stars if it changes the way I view the world. This book was full of amazing stories of coincidences and chance meetings that turn into amazing discoveries. Deke stressed the point that their are amazing finds out there still. They probably aren't Fenders or Gibsons, they may be some unknown guitars made in someone's garage. If the quality is there, then they are collectible.

An absolutely brilliant book if you are a guitar collector, guitar expert or just generally interested in guitars. Whilst reading this book I read and saw guitars that I never even knew existed. A very enjoyable read.

For serious guitar nerds onlyAs a serious guitar nerd, I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. And, if anyone has an old grandad with a 59 Les Paul tucked under his bed, email me

Almost five stars as this is a fun, well-written and exciting book. It just got docked slightly for having way more electric than acoustic guitars.

Such a fun read for guitar or musical instrument-obsessed readers! I think even the non-musician would get a kick out of it.

An interesting collection of short guitar stories. I especially liked the final story, which details his search for an original Bigsby guitar. Very enjoyable.
