An EXCELLENT book regarding the history and development of the bass guitar from the very beginning up until present.

The pictures themselves will likely cause many bass players to crave another instrument; however, the well laid out catalog of information included in makes it a must have.

Every serious bass player should have this in their library.

This is a great book, well written and researched and contains a treasure trove of wonderful photos. However, my copy of the book was printed on extremely thin, cheap copy paper and the pages were merely photocopied (as if it were a proof copy). I am not sure if this was correct or intentional, but I was expecting a full-color book. The photos are admittedly much less interesting and enjoyable when its printed at such low quality, but I still greatly enjoyed the writing and information.

A must for any bassist's book collection. A great story of how the bass evolved with awesome photos and interviews. This book mainly focuses on Fender and why not the inventor of the bass guitar.

Like the one guy said, not a lot about Gibson but it covers them enough. Lets face it Fender has always dominated the Bass industry so this book covers it accurately in my mind. They cover from the incarnation and the breakthrough of the P bass up through the birth of active electronics to modern basses. Not much about a lot of modern basses like Ibanez or anything but pretty thorough historically from the 50's through the 90's pretty much. A very interesting read with lots of great photographs.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought this book used to contain color illustrations. Regardless, the pictures of the basses and musicians are all in black and white and the print quality of this book is very poor. It honestly looks like the pages are photocopied - it's really that bad. I mean c'mon, this is a collector's book. Some of the pictures are so poor that you can see the pixels. In fact, the printing in last half of the book looks like the printer was running low on toner... the print gets light and blurry!

I recommend not buying this book.

A great book on the bass guitar. Plus it has a very nice picture of Jack Casady's original Alembic bass. It is worth having for that, alone. If you are a bass guitar buff, a player, or just interested in the instrument, this book will enlighten you to the different kinds of basses there are out there. And it covers more than just Fender basses.

The Bass Book

All the pages are in Black and White.
The Quality/Resulation of the pages are very poor, like a photocopy/xerox.

In the product's ad page, in "Look Inside" section, you can see some pages in color!

I don't recommend this purchase!
As a bassist and an instrument collector this book is invaluable as a reference. The information on non-Fender basses is somewhat lacking but that perhaps can't be helped given Fender's domination of the electric bass world. Filled with eye candy too!
