Instead of focusing on the manufacturing industry as most guitar magazines do, Guitar Connoisseur coves craft luthiers and “Haute Guitar”. Anything in the periphery of guitars will be covered such as hand-made guitars, Amps, Pedals, Pickups, Hardware and just about anything boutique that’s catering in a small scale to the high-end guitar market.
Editor in Chief Kelcey Alonzo is a New York City based guitar collector and player. Prior to establishing a small exclusive boutique instrument business; leading into the publishing of Guitar Connoisseur, Alonzo worked full time in the print media industry, specializing in photo retouching for leading fashion magazines. Channeling this expertise into the creation of a sophisticated periodical, celebrating contemporary craft luthiery is the realization of a dream.
