Welcome to our home on the web! Guitarbench Magazine is all about guitars.
In particular, acoustic and classical guitars and a selection of other acoustic instruments… lapslides, harp guitars and ukuleles. And we are all about our readers. We aim to provide high quality in depth articles and photography in a quarterly electronic format for you!
Okay, I confess. We love talking about gear at Guitarbench. But we love even more to talk about the stories, the expertise, the knowledge and know how behind the guitars, behind the inlay, behind the string. We go in-depth, by interviewing luthiers, by speaking to players, by getting the experts to contribute.
We have featured instruments yes, but we also have lessons and a lot of knowledge based articles to keep you informed.
Guitarbench is designed from scratch to be an electronic magazine, but with a familiar, print face. Many of our readers comment that if printed out, Guitarbench reads and feels like an analogue publication through and through.
We take that as a great compliment, as even though the issues are optimised and available for tablets, pcs and any number of platforms, we’re still at heart, a traditional publication.
You won’t find our magazines on itunes, or whatnot. We don’t go for the big business models or the mass market. We want to do our best, and connect with our readers, directly.
Try it out!
We wouldn’t purchase anything without trying it out first and we’re very humbled if you’d take a moment to have browse through our first year’s issues. We have made them freely available for download or online viewing, here.
If you like what you see, please consider taking up a subscription. It’ll help us to continue producing more content!
What Folks Think
“OMG I LOVE THIS MAGAZINE. I’ve been looking for a magazine like this since I first started building guitars… I subscribe to the Fretboard Journal but Guitarbench blows it away.”- Jonny Luxton
“Terence and crew, congratulations on your first issue. It is a master piece. Taunten Press’s publications (Fine Woodworking, Fine Homebuilding, Threads, etc…) have always been my standard of excellence in publishing, and Guitar Bench is every bit as well done in both layout and content. More along the lines of what I’m particularly interested in, too. This is not just another vapid guitar magazine, it’s got meat in it! Keep up the good work and thank you.”- Kraig
