The books "OUR VINTAGE SOUL " volumes 2 and 3 present a precise chronological representation in photographs of the complete Fender Vintage collection of Flavio Camorani, which includes all the instruments in standard 'solid body' colours and at least one model of each amplifier for for each period produced and listed in the official catalog by the FENDER FACTORY between 1946 and 1974.
In addition there is a tour of the 'Fullerton Factory' from the period 1982-1984, considered by the authors to be worthy of inclusion despite the total quality decline that followed Leo Fender's final departure from the company that bore his name.
Just like the first volume, the two new books have been produced using excellent quality coated paper, hard cover and handcrafted binding to make the most of the impressive content.
Explanations of over 100 instruments with their original cases, amplifiers, catalogs, guitar straps, cable jacks, electronic effects, tags and posters have been written in Italian but represent a minimum part of the content when compared to the many photos graphically depicting disassembled guitars, allowing the reader access to all the technical details highlighted by the authors in the combined 864 illustrated pages.
