This is the very first issue
of Guitar Legends, a special Collector's Edition Series from Guitar Player magazine. Published in 1984. Half Hendrix, Half Van Halen!
It wasn't hard for Guitar Player to pick the two guitarists to share the honor of being on the cover of the Premier issue. Fans, musicians, and critics alike agree that Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen are two of the most creative, talented, and influential rock guitarists who ever lived.
To create this special edition, the Guitar Player staff culled the archives for the best interviews and articles to present a treasury of rock history, playing technique, musical analysis, and artistic insight. and to ensure a permanent place in your library, they've added many exclusive photos, none of which were published before, or since, this issue.
We have a very limited supply of this 30+-year-old special issue, and the copies we have left were preserved in near mint condition. 68 pages total, with only 5 ads in the whole magazine! (34 pages of Hendrix, and 34 pages of Van Halen).
