The new issue of Guitar and Bass magazine is on sale now.
Fender’s desire to satisfy the needs of as many guitarists as possible is to be applauded, and few would argue that plenty of choice is a good thing. However, having a plethora of Stratocasters to choose from can make pondering a potential purchase a much more involved experience.

And the reviews don’t just stop there; gear from Gibson, Washburn and Roland – to name but three – are also within these pages for your delectation. Quality interviews with Michael Schenker and Luther Dickinson are provided for your entertainment, whilst the opportunity to have a gander at Steve Rothery’s guitar collection isn’t one to be passed up. Finally, my Anthem Publishing colleagues inform me we are running a January sale, offering you the chance to save money with all kinds of juicy offers. Who am I to stop you from saving some of your hard-earned, so please turn to page 84 of the issue to check out what works for you…
