SUSTAIN Magazine for Luthiers is a quarterly magazine for musicians and luthiers produced in Germany. I am its editor in chief, and work with a dream team of contributors that write articles of great interest for designers, builders, players, and lovers of stringed musical instruments (with focus on guitars).

It features articles on lutherie: workshop techniques, research, interviews, technology, design, finishing… also marketing, copyrights, news, and any other subject related to lutherie.

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 – effective immediately – 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.
