    I bought one at Half Priced Books once, it's called The Bass Book: A complete illustrated history of bass guitars by Tony Bacon & Barry Moorhouse copyright 1995

    It's really interesting, i just haven't had time to finish reading it. Lots of good facts on both musicians and luthiers.

    Terry, try doing a search on the Internet too. Must your sources be books? If not, you may find a lot of information for free on the Internet. Try Google.
