Essential

This podcast is a gem, just like its namesake magazine. Incredible experts share their time, insights and humour with knowledgable and insatiably curious host and publisher Jason Verlinde. More than you ever wanted to know (but realised was fascinating) about almost every aspect of guitar building, history, technology,
current players in the jazz and traditional forms etc. And the odd gorgeous tune.
