Quarterly guitar magazine about guitar building and guitar players
A great medium for fine gear, and those who appreciate fine gear!
Mission: Instead of focusing on the manufacturing industry as most guitar magazines do, Guitar Connoisseur coves craft luthiers and "Haute Guitar". Anything in the periphery of guitars will be covered such as hand-made guitars, Amps, Pedals, Pickups, Hardware and just about anything boutique that's catering in a small scale to the high-end guitar market.
Unbelievable and then Martin Miller sings!
Joe Satriani's new "Club Joe Streaming Sessions" returns for Episode 3 on Monday June 1st at 11am PT and focuses on everything about G3 Experience. Joe will be joined by his good friends Steve Vai and John Petrucci to explore the past, present and future of G3.
Post your G3 questions before the event in the comments below.

By Jon BloomerI first discovered Nik Huber Guitars in December 2007. The model that caught my attention was the “Redwood”, and it immediately made my wish list. I hadn’t seen a guitar with this kind of fluidic grain pattern before, which was further accentuated by the single piece of curly red...

There might not be a more well known and more undefined guitar shape in history than the legendary Gibson Flying V. It.....

Written By Eric DahlI was raised by a blues playing bass guitarist, so as a youth my parents warped my mind predominantly with that genre of music with their albums and 8-tracks. But as I came of age through the 1970’s and 80’s as a guitar playing teenager it seemed that there were no guitarists...
