New magazine for acoustic instument lovers

Fretboard Journal is a new quarterly magazine for acoustic instrument players, builders and collectors. The inaugural issue includes an interview with David Grisman, a history of Santa Cruz Guitars and a profile on “the Millionth Martin.”

Fretboard Journal is published and edited by folks with many years of experience in music, magazines and acoustic instruments. They describe themselves and the new publication thusly:

The Fretboard Journal is an archival-quality, quarterly publication celebrating the culture of fretted musical instruments. We chronicle the most innovative instruments (mandolins, banjos, ukuleles and”?of course”?guitars) and instrument makers of the last 150 or so years; the best players; and the most interesting tales from the world of music. In addition, each issue boasts stories from the working musician”s perspective and never-before-seen photography. Basically, we”re the nerds in the guitar store who love sharing a yarn with fellow players and this is our outlet.

Subscription information is available on their web site.
