The North American Guitar Connoisseur’ will launch across all App Stores in April, 2021, and feature brand new interviews, reviews, columns, and features—as well as TNAG videos, sessions, podcasts and news all in one app
Nashville-based guitar retailer and home of the world’s finest guitars, The North American Guitar (TNAG), are to launch a brand-new digital magazine aimed squarely at the high-end guitar market. Launching in April, 2021, ‘The North American Guitar Connoisseur’ will offer readers an exploration of luxury from the worlds of bespoke guitars, luthier-built steel-string instruments, vintage and rare, as well as the very best in lifestyle content.
Exclusive interviews with the biggest artists
Leading the launch issue of ‘The North American Guitar Connoisseur’ is the recording-breaking bluesman, and true guitar connoisseur, Joe Bonamassa. Speaking exclusively to TNAG Connoisseur, Bonamassa documents his guitar journey from teen prodigy to guitar hero, as well as tips and tricks for sourcing and buying vintage Les Pauls. Joining Bonamassa in launching TNAG Connoisseur is fellow aficionado, Jason Isbell, who takes us on a vintage voyage through guitar town. Hank Marvin talks about an enduring legacy like no other; Vince Gill opens up about his vintage Martin collection; Carlene Carter talks about carrying the torch for country music’s first family; Larkin Poe speak of their love for roots music; and Molly Tuttle reveals secrets to her clawhammer guitar techniques.
The best columns, features, and finest guitars
Elsewhere, Rene Martinez starts his multi-series biographical column taking us through his career as guitar tech for the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Prince, Santana, and John Mayer. Richard Hoover speaks about the sweet sound of Santa Cruz, Waddy Wachtel talks about being the world’s most in-demand sideman, Jimmy Webb digs deep as we go behind the hits in Songwriter’s Circle, we unearth the history of Maybelle Carter’s ’28 Gibson L-5 in the Vault, Fender’s Master Builders take us on a tour of the ‘Dream Factory’, treasures from ’59 are unearthed as we look at the most revered electric guitars, and we talk to photography legend Danny Clinch in our lifestyle section about shooting Springsteen, Cash, Young, and Dylan. Regular column content from Julian Lage and Laurence Juber will ensure readers get the latest advice on playing, recording, and rehearsing. Reviews and build threads of the finest electric and acoustic guitars the world has to offer complete the line-up of content.
Available to download on all App Stores
Readers will be able to get the first issue from all digital app stores in April, 2021. TNAG Connoisseur’s application will be free to download and then each issue will cost $6.99 or $29.99 for a 12-month / six-issue subscription.
