Guitar Aficionado - November/December - 2013 - John Stamos


Guitar Aficionado's November/December features John Stamos, who is best known for his TV and Broadway roles, but the Necessary Roughness star has also enjoyed a three-decade career supporting the Beach Boys in more ways than one. Stamos recalls his first time playing with the Beach Boys, and even showing Jimmy Page how to play a few three chord songs.

Also, we take you to California's Sonoma wine country for the Healdsburg Guitar Festival, where the world's finest guitar builders convene for this biannual show.

In the November/December issue we also take a look back at the era when C.F. Martin & Co. laid the foundation for the modern steel-string flattop acoustic guitar.

Plus: Rock 'n' roll chef Kerry Simon; Beijing in a Bentley; 108 rock star guitars; authentic Japanese Wagyu beef; Holiday gift guide; and much more!
