The Electric Guitar: Inventing an American Icon
Our handsome catalog was published in 2018 for MIM’s exhibition, The Electric Guitar: Inventing an American Icon. The catalog features full-color photography of historic instruments, vintage advertisements and illustrations, and text written by Richard Walter, PhD, MIM’s curator for United States / Canada and Europe.
MIM’s exhibition featured more than eighty of the world’s rarest electric guitars and amplifiers—from some of the first ever heard to those played by the most famous electric guitarists known today. Highlight examples come from private collectors including guitar historian Lynn Wheelwright.
Our paperbound book is a perfect conversation piece in your home and an ideal way to remember your visit to our spectacular exhibition or to give as a gift.
