“It didn’t matter how much I abused it, I couldn’t kill it. Well, almost.” With that, author Michael Phillips prefaces the demise of his first guitar, a Gibson Flying-V knock-off known only by its catalog description: No. 2236 Flying Wedge. This memoir is a humorously written ode to an object, but anyone who has played a guitar knows that it doesn’t take long for the guitar to become a lot more than a hunk of wood and metal. This little book is also a course in memoir-writing, perfectly capturing and celebrating the youthful drive to become a rock star, and the realization that using simple electronics to create extremely loud noise is almost as good.
The trade edition is a single-signature hand-sewn chapbook. The covers are Gocco-printed onto linen cardstock wrappers, and the text is on Hammermill heavyweight color copy paper. The endpapers are color laser printed on bright white vellum.
Limited to 40 copies.
