Guitarmaker News

Guitarmaker is the premier full-color journal for builders, players, and enthusiasts of all stripes interested in guitars, banjos, mandolins, and all other sort of fretted stringed instruments.

While we build online content, you can enjoy perusing back issues of the magazine and order them for a mere pittance. If you are not already a member, we’re sure you’ll want to join ASIA for this great magazine and other benefits.

History Lives!

The oldest three issues of what is now Guitarmaker Magazine have been unearthed with the way-back machine, lovingly scanned and ocr’ed, and put online for your viewing pleasure. Everyone has access to one or two articles, but you need to be logged in to see the links for all articles.

Start at the out-of-print page, then choose an issue to read. You will be presented with a cover picture and the table of contents is linked to the articles. Remember, only members have access to 100% of online articles.

Issue 81 - Apology to Jack Clark

Hi Members,

In the fall Guitarmaker #81 column Fledgling Luthier, by Jack Clark, I somehow got the text from the previous column in Guitarmaker #80 instead. The photos are correct, but the text is incorrect. Jack sent me everything for the fall issue, but it was my mistake in placing it. I proof read everything, but it got past me somehow. I’ll correct this in the winter issue with the correct article. I just wanted to make sure that you didn’t think it was Jack’s mistake, it’s all mine. My apologies to Jack Clark and ASIA members for this error.

Regards,

Alton “Bear” Acker, Editor
