Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail.

We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.

Frequently bought together
The Fretboard Journal is a publication like no other: a coffee-table style magazine written specifically for players, collectors, and builders of guitars, banjos, mandolins, and ukuleles. In each quarterly issue, The Fretboard Journal celebrates the innovators of the music world and the tools they use, acoustic and electric, weird and collectible. You'll find famous musicians interviewing other famous musicians about the equipment they use; profiles of some of the world's finest luthiers; and great essays covering the historical context of legendary recordings. With original photography, archival quality paper, and minimal advertising, each issue will be a keepsake you'll cherish. Unlike most guitar magazines, The Fretboard Journal doesn't review gear or feature instructional pieces; it simply covers the great stories behind musical instruments and musicians. Whether your interest is old-time music or indie rock (or somewhere in between), you'll find something in each eclectic issue specifically for you.

The magazine itself is a high quality publication with good photography and decent articles. Features on artists focus on their instruments and some of North America's finest luthiers and builders are given the opportunity to showcase their talents in the quarterly.
The founder and publisher, Jason Verlinde, is a great guy with lots of passion for guitars and their heritage. I was pleased to meet him at a Montreal guitar show in 2010. The magazine, and Mr. Verlinde, also show interest in other fretted instruments like mandolins and banjos. I never saw an Irish bouzouki in FJ, but I only read around half of the issues put out to date.
So while it is a good magazine, its downfall is in it being somewhat difficult to acquire. I bought several issues from Chapters here in Canada, but the location nearest my home isn't near at all and they didn't always get the magazine at its release date. So, I eventually opted for subscription which became very problematic here in Canada as the magazine more often than not arrived damaged.
The best way to acquire this magazine, in my opinion, is the iPad version. If I were ever to buy it again, this would be the way I would get it. The hard copy, if you don't live in the US, is probably not a good choice.
I love it. Even my wife read it!
