Basses and Guitars: The Huckabee Collection

Retail Price: $24.95

It has been said that Mike Huckabee is a different kind of politician.

And this book profiles his different kind of guitar collection.

The former governor of Arkansas was a stereotypical youngster who was mesmerized by the Beatles’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, when he was eight and a half years old. He’s been fascinated with basses and guitars ever since, and has played numerous brands and models over the decades.

Mike’s collection dates back to an “identical twin” of his father’s 1934 Gene Autry cowboy guitar, and he also has his first electric guitar from 1966. Both of those instruments are on display herein (along with their stories) as are dozens of basses and guitars he’s collected in more recent times, including autographed guitars and custom-made instruments.

Also participating with guitar-centric recollections are several famous guitarists who have appeared on Huckabee’s television show on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, including Doyle Dykes, Mark Farner, Steve Wariner, Vince Martell, Greg Martin, Doug Phelps and Richard Young.

BASSES AND GUITARS: The Huckabee Collection is an informative and entertaining look at an assemblage that is a unique part of the guitar collecting phenomenon.
