Ted McCarty

I recently purchased "Gibson Guitars Ted McCarty's Golden Era". For those of you who don't know McCarty was president of Gibson from 1948 to 1966. His main passion was engineering though. He was responsible for the ABR-1, the Explorer, Flying V and the Moderne among other things. McCarty also oversaw the development and production of the original Les Paul. I'm thinking everyone knows that story though.

Not to give too much of the plot away the book follows McCarty from childhood to Wurlitzer and then on to Gibson ( with a lot of detail of that period obviously).
