Reader Survey – May 2013

 

In a continuing effort to deliver what the readers of Vintage Guitar want to see, we ask that you take a few minutes to complete this survey of our May 2013 issue, which has Buddy Guy on the cover. We would like to know what you did or didn’t read and what level of interest you have in our various articles.

Your responses are very important, as we use this information to decide what to cover in the magazine. I deeply appreciate you taking the time to help. – Alan Greenwood, Publisher/Founder, Vintage Guitar

For this first section I have listed the articles as they appeared in the May issue and it may be helpful for you to flip through it as you do the survey. Simply check the articles that you read, otherwise leave the box blank.
