One of the most often asked questions I get from our readers is “what’s coming up in your next issue?” Though we like to keep each and every issue of the FJ a surprise — it’s fun to have a magazine that follows no template, covers the entire spectrum of guitars and styles and keeps you on your toes — I’m happy to spill the beans on a few highlights.
In Fretboard Journal #24 (pre-order here, coming back from our printer in about a week), we have a lengthy interview and photo shoot with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder. We talked to Vedder about the 20th anniversary of his band, his songwriting process, his guitar collection and, of course, ukuleles (he has a stellar ukulele album out now, in case you didn’t know). This 18-page feature contains exclusive new photos of Eddie and his gear, too.
Also in this issue: a great tribute to the late Robbie Basho, Telecaster whiz Redd Volkaert, bluesman John Hammond, a photo essay from Wartrace, Tennessee’s Gallagher Guitars and a lot more.
As always, every issue of the FJ is 128 pages long and filled with exclusive photography and in-depth stories you won’t find anywhere else. Advertising is kept to a minimum and limited to gear makers and dealers we think you’ll love. If you’re a guitar nut, this magazine is for you.
