Current Issue

Singer/songwriter/world-class guitarist Steve Wariner was just inducted to the Nashville Musicians’ Hall of Fame – an honor that accompanies his four Grammys, CMAs, 30 Top 10 hits, and 14 #1 singles. Icing on the cake is a spankin’ new signature Gretsch 6120. We go in-depth with the superstar.
We also speak with electric-blueser Toronzo Cannon, who draws inspiration from his own (very real) world. Also talking vital new guitar music are Jim Peterik, Jan Akkerman, Joanna Connor, Pat Travers, G. Love, Vinnie Moore, Laura Cox, Jakko Jakszyk, and the Spellcasters. We then dig into monumental instruments in guitardom, ranging from Gibson’s first ES-350NT to two prototype Telecaster Thinlines and one of Randall Smith’s first Mesa-Boogie amps.
This month’s “Pop ’N Hiss” reflects on the greatness within the grooves of Steely Dan’s Royal Scam, Wolf Marshall’s “Fretprints” reminds us of the extraordinary skill of Tuck Andress, and our reviewers detail why anyone needing new gear (and who isn’t?) should check out the Foxrox Hot Silicon 2, Solo Dallas Schaffer Replica Storm, WingmanFx DangerZone, Caparison Dellinger Prominence, Fender Vintera ’50s Strat Modified, Prestige Troubadour RS, Ernie Ball Music Man Short-Scale StringRay, and the Kammerer Canis Major.
Needing fresh jams? We tell you about new music from Jimi Hendrix, Marty Stuart, Mike Zito, Slash, the Rolling Stones, Skip James, Jethro Tull, and more!
