I started subscribing to Guitar Player in the early '70s. There weren't many magazines (if any others for that matter?) back then dedicated to just guitar. I also subscribed, or went to, the local "Smoke Shops" at that time to get copies of Circus and Creem magazines. I stopped subscribing to GP in the mid '80s, went on a 20 year hiatus and started subscribing again in '06. If I notice that there something of interest in "Guitarist" magazine, I'll pick-up a copy, likewise with "Premier Guitar" or "Vintage Guitar" magazines. Rarely will I even look at "Guitar World". I guess I'm a little to old for that? I like to read about the gear players are using, their technique, influences, what about those influences inspired them and the lesson content, in particular, Jesse Gress' stuff, especially his "10 Thins You've Gotta Do To Play Like..." series.
