What's Inside?

The Summer edition of Guitarist Presents Acoustic features our cover star Martin Simpson, a master of acoustic fingerstyle technique. As he prepares for the release of his latest album, ‘Rooted’, he invites us into his home where we tour his beautiful collection of vintage and custom acoustics – and find out how one particularly special Martin D-28, previously owned by American troubadour Jackson C Frank, changed his musical life. Elsewhere in the issue, we join UK singer-songwriter John Smith, who reveals what is was really like to share the stage and tour circuit with the late John Martyn, and talks us through his gorgeous Fylde acoustics, built by Roger Bucknall. On the subject of fine luthiery, we put our own hand-building skills to the test as we embark upon a Martin Dreadnought Kit build, we visit Auden’s Northamptonshire workshop, plus reviews of new models from Martin, Taylor, Finlayson, Eastman, Fender and the fruits of Lowden’s new collaboration with Ed Sheeran. Finally, why not add some alternative chord voicings to your summer technique hit-list with our Substitute column? It’s a packed issue for lovers of everything acoustic.
