The 53rd issue of the Fretboard Journal once again yields a coffee-table book-sized peek at the fretted instrument world’s best moments. If you love guitars and great storytelling, this is for you.
In this issue: Ben Harper talks about the gear and ideas that went into Wide Open Light, his beautifully stripped-down 2023 album; Mark Finkelpearl interviews Fran Blanche, the one-of-a-kind electronics wizard behind Frantone Electronics; singer-songwriter Joanna Sternberg talks music and influences with Jamie Stillway; and guitarist Bob Minner interviews acoustic guitar authority Jim Baggett of Mass Street Music. Also in this issue: Maple Byrne; the legacy of Kate Wolf's guitar; the Gibson L-5; jazz guitarist Dan Wilson and so much more.
