Sehr schöne Nischenliteratur zum Thema Les Paul Sunburst

Hind, 12.08.2014
Tony Bacon ist einer der bekanntesten Fachautoren für Gitarrenliteratur. Und zudem einer der produktivsten. Mitte 2013 brachte er mit "The Ibanez Electric Guitar Book" eine gelungene Firmenhistorie über die japanischen Gitarrenschmiede heraus. Weniger als 12 Monate später steht mit "Sunburst: How The Gibson Les Paul Standard Became A Legendary Guitar" schon ein weiterer Titel im Bücherregal, der sich diesmal aber keiner Unternehmenshistorie widmet, sondern einzig und allein dem begehrtesten Gitarrenmodell der Welt: der Gibson Les Paul Sunburst.

Das Softcover-Buch ist logisch aufgebaut und stringent geschrieben, dabei sehr schön und wertig gestaltet. Die Druckqualität ist exzellent - ein Muss für die unzähligen, sehr guten Fotografien der alten Bursts. Bacon vermittelt in seinem Buch einen umfangreichen Abriss von der Geburt der Les Paul Sunburst in den 50er Jahren bis hin zu den Collector's Choice Reissues bekannter Sunburst zu Anfang der 2010er Jahre. Gerade den Hype um die berüchtigten 59er Les Pauls einiger berühmter Gitarristen fängt Tony Bacon gekonnt ein, indem er Musiker wie Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Slash oder Joe Bonamassa wunderbar in die Chronologie der Erzählung einbaut und interessante Anekdoten zum Besten gibt.

Tony Bacon ist als Autor ein echter Informations-Hamster. Wie das Nagetier auch, hat er fleißig alle (bereits irgendwo publizierten) Infos und Geschichten recherchiert und belegt die wichtigen Angaben sauber mit Quellen. Diese Herangehenweise ist jedoch auch der größte Kritikpunkt, denn wie schon in vielen seiner früheren Bücher beschränkt sich Tony Bacon darauf, altbekannte Informationen zu sammeln und alles passend zusammenzufügen. Damit kratzt er zwar an vielen Stellen an der Oberfläche, erzählt aber keine neuen oder tiefergehenden Geschichten zum Thema. Diese etwas oberflächliche Art und Weise der Informationslieferung ist für einen Laien genau richtig. Einem Experten zum Thema Burst lockt Tony Bacon damit aber an den meisten stellen nur ein müdes Lächeln hervor. Zu wenig "Aha-Momente" liefert der Titel auf seinen 144 Seiten.

Insgesamt ein sehr ordentlicher Titel zum Thema Les Paul Sunburst mit schönen Bildern, einem prima Aufbau und guten (wenngleich auch nur "aufgewärmten") Geschichten. Bacon gibt einen guten Überblick, enttäuscht aber in der Informationstiefe den Kenner. Preis und Leistung stehen in einem gesunden Verhältnis.

Schöne Bilder, tolle Geschichten

22.02.2016
Mir gefällt dieses Buch sehr gut!
Ich finde die Informationen und die Geschichte um die Les Paul sehr interessant. Vielleicht sind die für andere ja kalter Kaffee, für mich sind sie neu und spannend. Im BotB sind mehr Bilder, aber ich finde Sunburst informativer.
