BIBLIOGRAPHY

I have written for Vintage Guitar Magazine in early 1995 and 20th Century Guitar Magazine. 

I have also contributed to such books as Fender: The Sound Heard ‘round the World by Richard Smith, The Fender Bass - An Illustrated History by J.W. Black and Albert Molinaro, The Soul of Tone: Celebrating 65 Years of Fender Amps by Tom Wheeler, Werner’s List of Fender Guitar Serial Numbers by James Werner, and Gruhn’s Guide to Vintage Guitars, 2nd edition by George Gruhn and Walter Carter.  More notably, I wrote all the tech sections and timelines and served as technical editor for the book Ampeg: The Story behind the Sound by Gregg Hopkins and Bill Moore.
