Norman Harris can certainly lay claim to being one of the premier buyers and sellers and of vintage guitars in the world. Since he founded Norman's Rare Guitars in the San Fernando Valley, he has been responsible for providing instruments for everyone from George Harrison and Tom Petty to Richie Sambora and Bob Dylan.

Harris, as he reveals in his memoirs here, started dealing in vintage instruments back in the 1970s when virtually no one else was interested in them. He slowly gathered up a collection of extraordinary instruments--perusing early editions of the newspaper and sometimes driving for hours in search of the perfect guitar--and ultimately came to be known as the man to go to if you wanted a pristine Gibson Les Paul or a mindblowing Fender Stratocaster.

He talks about his life in the business as well as his own pursuits as a musician. He writes about the guitars that got away and the ones that didn't-- and how he made some serious money along the way.

It's a fun book, and anyone who has ever yearned for one of these iconic instruments can now read about the man who made a business out of finding and selling them.
