Guitar World

"Guitar World" is a monthly music magazine devoted to guitarists. It contains original interviews, album and gear reviews and guitar and bass tablature of approximately five songs each month. The magazine is published 13 times per year (12 monthly issues and a holiday issue).

The magazine debuted in July 1980, with Johnny Winter appearing on the cover. In its 28 year history, "Guitar World" has had interviews with some of the most influential guitarists in rock, including Ritchie Blackmore, Jeff Beck, Arthur Rhames, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen who has been featured on the cover 16 times, and twice on subsidiary magazine "Guitar Legends".

In the January 2005 issue, "Guitar World" began selling some issues of the magazine with CD-ROMs containing video lessons, gear demonstrations and other self-produced and third-party content. Magazines that contain the disc sell for three dollars more ($7.99 rather than $4.99) and are packaged in plastic sleeves to prevent theft of the CD-ROM. Each issue used to come with a centerfold poster of an artist or band featured in the magazine for that month, but these are no longer included (magazines have stayed full price). In 2007 "Guitar World" started to produce a new DVD magazine "Guitar World presents...Guitar DVD"

As of the September 2008 issue, "Guitar World" is including columns from its now defunct sister magazines "Guitar One" and "Guitar World Acoustic".Some of the columnists include:
*Symphony of Instruction by Dave Mustaine of Megadeth
*The Alchemical Guitarist by Richard Lloyd of Television
*Time to Burn by Michael Angelo Batio
*Practice What You Preach by Eric Peterson of Testament
*Left-Hand Path by Ihsahn of Emperor
*All That Jazz by Vic Juris
*Talkin' Blues by Keith Wyatt
*Gypsy Soul by John Jorgenson
