If you’re addicted to guitar and bass, there’s no better app than Premier Guitar. Renowned as the world’s most unbiased and diverse source of in-depth gear news and reviews, PG delivers insights on a wide range of instruments, effects, and amps—from entry-level to high-end. Even better, every one of our reviews features sound samples and/or video demos (with wi-fi connection) to give you an even clearer idea of the gear’s capabilities.

But the PG app has loads more than that. Each issue is packed with enlightening interviews with the most compelling players on the scene today—from rising indie icons to metal shredders, jazz heads, country twangers, avant weirdoes, singer-songwriters, and more. We also have a stacked lineup of industry experts sharing their know-how on everything from DIY gear projects to stompbox geekery, recording, performing, vintage instruments, optimizing your gear, and more.

The PG app offers access to new Premier Guitar issues for a minimal fee ($3.99 each or $11.99 for an annual subscription)

In addition, you'll also receive real-time updates on breaking news stories and PG’s latest videos—including Rig Rundowns, gear demos, reviews, how-tos, and more. And it’s all in one app.

Customer Reviews

Doesn't remember progress


Every time you launch the app you have to select issue and are dropped on first page of it.

Also has an additional ad bar on top, even tho I have a paid subscription. The top bar is clumsy.

Love the mag, hate the app


After subscribing, tried to read an issue linked through email. There was a banner ad across the top for strings that couldn't be hidden. It was suggested I get the app, I thought, so I could avoid the ad.
Downloaded the app, couldn't get the issue. I was instructed to get the latest app, and to do that I had to upgrade my OS. Got the issue after some email login problems. Still have the ad. Very slow download had to be started again a few times. My internet connection clocks at around 40mps, but the app is sluggish as far as downloading and page turns, and then there's the ad that doesn't go away.
I would totally recommend against a digital subscription.

Purchase can't be restored


Love the magazine. Had October before update. Now it's asking me to buy it. Something important was left out of the update--current subscribers. Please fix.

UPDATE: the current solution seems to be to make the current issue free. So I downloaded November. Twenty minutes later, it still takes time to load each page. This new app is plain terrible. The prior app was great. Please go back. Don't try to fix the new app. Trash it. It's too painful to use. There is no reason to subscribe to this app. The free web version is far superior. I guess that I will never be able to access my saved bookmarks from prior versions.

I'm also incredibly disappointed that I did not receive a specific response to my direct e-mail to PG.

PG: you have mishandled every aspect of this attempted update. I can't understand how this went so wrong when the magazine is otherwise so top-notch.
