Eleven is an independently produced, luxury print magazine on the themes of music, creativity and storytelling, with guitar as a springboard for the stories. Eleven is a female-owned platform for sharing beautiful photography, but also, to push beyond that, to lift up interesting people from all corners of the guitar world, to build relationships and celebrate the things that inspire us to create.
This issue brings you eleven features over 132 pages; from the challenges of resurrecting an early 1952 Goldtop that survived a tornado, to an up-close forensic examination of Kurt Cobain’s Smells Like Teen Spirit Fender Mustang, and the survival story of a cruise ship guitarist who saved over 500 passengers when the liner he was performing on began to sink off the coast of South Africa, only for the captain and crew to abandon ship.
Eleven shares interviews with artists and luthiers alongside detailed photo stories of the finest vintage guitars - from two of Fender’s rarest 1960s custom colours to a Burst rediscovered after decades in a basement. We talk golden-era collectibles and guitar photography with Gibson photographer Mitch Conrad. There’s even a mini masterclass on how to take better photographs of your own guitar.
