TNAG Connoisseur launches across all major App Stores

Today, we are proud to launch our brand-new digital magazine, The North American Guitar Connoisseur, aimed squarely at the high-end guitar market. The new publication 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.

You can enjoy issue 1 for free by redeeming code ‘conn01’ in the TNAG Connoisseur application.  

Exclusive interviews with the biggest artists
Leading the launch issue of TNAG 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 afficionado, Jason Isbell, who takes us on 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 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 talks to us 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 electrics 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 worldwide. 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.

The application will be a departure from the archaic PDF replica content most digital magazine applications offer today. Giving readers the truly immersive digital experience of a native application, the TNAG Connoisseur app will showcase the latest issue of the magazine as well as all of the content available from The North American Guitar including news feeds direct from their Nashville showroom, video features and sessions from all their players, as well as all of their Talking Guitar podcasts.

A feature-packed content application for lovers of everything high-end guitar—and the true home of the world’s finest guitars and their players. 

Buy, sell, play, love
