With our 47th issue, the Fretboard Journal continues its 15th anniversary celebration with a bang. Within its 128 pages, we've packed some of favorite stories from the past, present and future of guitars.
On the cover, James Taylor sits down with the FJ's Brian K. Saunders to talk about standards, gear acquisition, production and more (we also chat with Jim Olson, his long-running luthier of choice). Meanwhile, Canadian guitarmaker David Wren reflects on his first 50 years of guitarmaking in both prose and pictures. We also hold court with another famed builder, John Monteleone, and talk about the innovative lap steel archtop that he built for Ben Harper. We also chat guitars, music and life (what else?) with Chuck Prophet, Bahamas, and Paul Stanley. Plus: Flip Scipio reflects on Cuba; the illustrations of Mason Stoops and more.
