The Fretboard Journal is a guitar magazine made for fretted instrument fanatics, by instrument fanatics.
All new subscriptions begin with our December, 2022 issue (Fretboard Journal 51).
Each keepsake edition is filled with in-depth interviews, gorgeous photo essays, and insightful profiles featuring the world's finest players and instrument builders. Supplies are limited and often sell out.
As a reader-supported publication, each issue of the FJ weighs in at 128 pages with minimal advertising. Think of it as a quarterly coffee table book centered on the world of guitars, amps, mandolins, and other fretted instruments. Whether you're an acoustic or an electric player, a lover of boutique modern instruments or vintage gear, we have something for you.
