In this video are portraits of G.E. Smith, Alejandro Escovedo, the Queen of Chicago Blues Joanna Connor, and Austin's own Eliza Gilkyson with their favorite guitars from the new book 'A Perfectly Good Guitar' by Chuck Holley.

Ask guitar players about their instruments, and you’re likely to get a story—where the guitar came from, or what makes it unique, or why the player will never part with it. Most guitarists have strong feelings about their primary tool, and some are downright passionate about their axes. Chuck Holley is a professional photographer and writer who loves music and listening to musicians talk about their trade. For several years, he has been photographing guitarists with their prized instruments and collecting their stories. This beautifully illustrated book presents these stories in revelatory photographs and words.

In 'A Perfectly Good Guitar', musicians including Rosanne Cash, Guy Clark, JD Souther, Jorma Kaukonen, Bill Frisell, and Kelly Willis pose with and tell stories about the classic Gibsons, Fenders, Martins, and other guitars that have become their most prized instruments.
