108 ROCK STAR GUITARS™
By Lisa S. Johnson – Foreword by Les Paul
About fifteen years ago, Lisa S. Johnson was working as a technical sales representative for Kodak. In order to gain a greater knowledge of Kodak's product line, she bought her own professional grade camera equipment and began shooting still images in her spare time.
The culmination of that journey is available now. 108 Rock Star Guitars is a 396-page, leather-bound behemoth brimming with beautiful, elegant images of some of the most iconic and recognized instruments the world has ever known. The subjects who allowed their most prized possessions to be photographed by Johnson reads like a veritable who's who of rock guitar royalty. More than that though, Johnson's work is threaded with personal stories detailing her own epic adventure to discover and celebrate these wondrous instruments. It wasn't always easy, but it came out looking oh, so good.
Hailed as “impressive,” “jaw-dropping,” “masterpiece” and “elegant” by media and artists alike when the original hardcover version was released in October 2013, 108 Rock Star Guitars received widespread accolades for its overall design and the artistry of the images—up-close portraits of the cherished guitars belonging to some of the world’s most iconic players. American Photo magazine named it one of the “Best Photo Books of the Year” for 2013, while Brian Setzer called it, “The classiest guitar book I have ever seen.” Additionally, Johnson provides personal anecdotes describing her 17-year quest to photograph these guitars and documents her travels from the backstage hallways of some of the world’s most famous venues to the artists’ private homes.

Armed with a macro lens, an incredible eye for detail and a truly ground breaking vision, Lisa Johnson’s guitar art, is taking the world of fine art photography on a rock and roll ride.

Her debut book entitled “108 RockStar Guitars” is slated for release in Fall of 2013 in which the foreword was written by Les Paul. 108 Rock Star Guitars is a compilation of photographer and author Lisa S. Johnson’s stunningly personal and intimate portraits of the cherished guitars owned by the gods of rock. It is a music and fine-art photography aficionado’s private backstage pass to witness up-close these six-stringed works of art. From the guitars of Les Paul to Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, Nancy Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Chrissie Hynde, and many others, this ultra-luxe, coffee table photo book reveals through Johnson’s signature macrophotography style the intimate details, etchings, totems, and personal touches that embody the true spirit of the musician and that few save for their stage crew have seen from this perspective. Alongside these images, she provides personal anecdotes describing her 17-year journey to photograph these iconic instruments and documents her travels from the backstage hallways of some the world’s most famous concert venues, to the artist’s private homes.
