SUSTAIN Magazine for Luthiers was a quarterly magazine for musicians and luthiers produced in Germany. I acted as its editor in chief, and a dream team of contributors wrote articles of great interest for designers, builders, players, and lovers of stringed musical instruments (with focus on electric guitars). It features articles on lutherie: workshop techniques, research, interviews, technology, design, finishing… also marketing, copyrights, news, and much more.

It is available both in digital or printed versions. As a thank you note for all my customers and friends who enjoy my guitars and my books, I offer here (for free – for ever) a free download of all 8 issues of SUSTAIN MAGAZINE for Luthiers.

SUSTAIN features articles, research, news, techniques, and everything in and about the art of building musical instruments (with special focus on electric guitars and basses).

Enjoy and spread the word.
