Issue #28 'George Lynch'

Welcome to GI issue 28! Two of Rock's greatest guitarists share our front cover this time around - George Lynch and Hank Marvin - each a legend in his era and rightly so still today!

We're coming out of the Festival season now and into the hard slog of winter touring, so our review team is out scouting for the guitarists and bassists we think you'd like us to talk to on your behalf. Why not email and let us know who you want us to feature?

The same goes for gear. We want to bring you reviews of the products you want to read about, so please get in touch and make your voices heard!
