Australian Guitar #119 is now on sale and it’s bursting with more premium content than a Christmas stocking hanging in a billionaires lounge room.

Our centerpiece is an in-depth retrospective by Peter Hodgson of I Heart Guitar on this year’s comeback kings, Guns N’ Roses, including exclusive interviews with current band members and key people who were on the ground during their late ‘80s reign.

We find out what Dave Navarro thinks is so magic about the musical chemistry in Jane’s Addiction, get tech with heavy hitters Meshuggah, Opeth and Of Mice and Men and catch up with Aussie shredders Harts and The Peep Tempel.

On the gear-front, we provide you with the ultimate DIY guide to Setting Up Your Guitar which will no doubt prove invaluable and we review the hottest new stock from Epiphone, Ernie Ball by Musicman, Fender, Atomic, Supro, Peavey, Audio Technica, Fishman and more.

We’ve also make things easy for you (and your family members – hint, hint) with a six-page Xmas Gift Guide and the complete tab for “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers.
