    Back in 2009 I saw this book in the bargain section at the bookstore- I hesitated because it’s one of those coffee table books I would only occasionally reread or browse. Still, for the price I should’ve gotten it- when I came back the next day, it was gone-

    When recently I thought about buying a copy as a gift for a fellow bassist- this is the current price-

    Had one online for 20€, when every other sellers sold it for 200.
    I'll never let it go even for 200 anyway. It's too cool of a book.

    I could’ve had that new one in the bargain section for around 15 USD if I hadn’t hesitated-

    Books are under appreciated now
    Sometimes people come around home and "say wow you have books"
    It's like how would I not have books

    Looking at the book cover, I wonder what Entwistle had in mind with the mirrored Ps... I 'm thinking more scooped E and A and tighter punchier D and G. But, I don't know much about anything. Perhaps the Ox would say "I just like the way it looks buddy".

    I just noticed that it's a pic of one of his custom Buzzards- perhaps the folks at Warwick could say.
