A new guide to vintage Gibson instruments

Thanks to Cathal Cusack for this news item from the website of the Fretboard Journal:

In May of 2011, Joe Spann will release Spann's guide to Gibson 1902-1941, a new book on vintage Gibson guitars, mandolins and banjos that may very well rewrite how we classify, age and think about these wonderful instruments. Spann did copious amounts of research for his 300-page book, including interviewing the few still-living employees of Gibson from this era.

The publishers, Centerstream, recently produced Jim Mills's important book on original prewar Gibson flathead 5-string Mastertone banjos. You can read more about the new book, hear a podcast on the FJ website, and click on a link to Amazon, here.
