From simple wooden toys to $1,000,000 guitars!
I've just written the chapter on Fender senior master builder Yuriy Shishkov, and I can't stop reading it. From carving simple wooden toys out of broken fences as a young boy in Russia, to building the most exotic electric guitars on the planet at the Dream Factory; this guy's story is as captivating as the instruments he builds! There are just a few more draft chapters to go, and then I can get stuck into the photos! Thank you kindly all you past and present Fender folks out there. PS The target date for publication is still October 2018. :-)
