These Go to Eleven: The Heart-Stomping Beauty of Classic Guitars

Olivier Pojzman Guitar Portraits | Firecracker Journal

The legendary Chet Atkins was warming up for a session in a Nashville studio with a sweet sounding Gretsch slung from his shoulder. As the notes rang out, a young technician remarked “Gee, that instrument sure sounds good!” Atkins stopped strumming. “Well, son", he drawled. "How's it sound now?”

Featuring vintage guitars from the early 1930s to 1980s, Olivier's hand-picked collection provides a sleek look into the evolution of the instrument that is a key component -- rock, country, folk, soul, blues or otherwise -- of what is commonly referred to as the "American sound."

Let's be realistic about this: the guitar can be the most blasphemous device on the face of the earth. That's why I like it... the disgusting stink of a too-loud electric guitar, now that's my idea of a good time."Frank Zappa
