ABOUT GUITAR WORLD NETWORK
Distinct Artist Coverage
Guitar World prides itself on its intimate relationship with
revered artists world-wide. This kinship is evident in every
feature produced and interview conducted. From Jimmy Page to
Jack White, our publications are thumbed through by the most
talented guitarists and musicians in the industry. With a celebrity
on every cover and the most in-depth behind-the-scenes and
hands-on content on every page, no other instrument magazine
delves into the artist’s persona more than Guitar World.
Unrivaled Music Instruction
For nearly 30 years, devoted guitarists have turned to Guitar
World for first-class instruction that covers their favorite
guitarists and bands, authoritative lessons in guitar style and
technique, and accurate transcriptions of the greatest songs in
rock, metal, blues, punk and more.
Myriad of Portals
Guitar World goes beyond the printed page and delivers rich
content via the web, TV, and CD/DVD that extends our reach
to guitar enthusiasts everywhere. With constantly evolving
web content (including the new Guitar World Tabs), our
exclusive Comcast on-demand television channel, and the most
authoritative guitar instructional CD/DVD series available, it’s
no wonder Guitar World knows no media boundaries.

ADVERTISER TESTIMONIALS
“Seymour Duncan was the first major
gear manufacturer to get on board with
Guitar World On-Line. We’ve used a
variety of vehicles including video prerolls, Flash banners, contests, sponsorships, and Comcast commercials. The
CPM is right. The ROI is solid. And their
customer service can’t be beat.”
− Evan
“As a new business, with a brand new
product, I was in need of serious targeted quality exposure with reasonable
rates and GuitarWorld.com advertising has performed on all levels! My
business simply would not be where it
is today without them and their killer
customer relations”
− David
“Guitar World seems to always be on
the leading edge of web technology.
They even somehow make the web
cooler! Our experiences with advertising on their sites have always been very
positive and extremely rewarding.”
− Dale
“We have been advertising on Guitarworld.com for over a year and the site
has contributed to a significant amount
of our site traffic month after month.
We look forward to a long lasting relationship with the site and staff.”
− Kevin
“Working with the Guitar World/
Future US family of websites has been
nothing but a pleasure. From the stellar
coverage of our bands, the ease and
effectiveness in booking banner ads,
and the great people working there,
they are
setting
a prime
example of
how websites
should be
operated.”
