Fretboard Journal Magazine - #43
The Fretboard Journal #43 has arrived, chock-a-block with the finest and most fascinating stories from world of stringed instruments and those who make and play them, once again exploring the edges and the extremes, from mountaintops to prison cells. This issue features the young virtuosi (and former housemates) Molly Tuttle and Billy Strings as well as noted Irish luthier George Lowden and Nashville musical polymath Rory Hoffman. We also spend a lot of time on the repair bench, digging into the resurrection of Billy’s grandfather’s “prison guitar,” sharing a portrait of Pat DiBurro and taking a look at the restoration of a pair of Harmony Sovereigns, then squeeze in a chance encounter with Keb’ Mo, indulge in our first bit of travel porn, and a whole lot more. 128 pp.
