Australian Guitar Review aims at providing quality news, reviews and information to the Australian and International guitar player. The site was developed due to a limited amount of information on the Australian guitar market. Unfortunately, being geographically isolated sometimes means that we see the releases, but not the products. What is ‘standard’ in the US is often unavailable or highly priced, Australian Guitar review aims to bridge the gap and provide the information that the guitarist needs to make an informed, and primarily local decision on the purchase of their instrument and accessories.
This site is totally independent of any retailer or brand and therefore we report the news as we see it. Reviews on products are on the majority purchased by Australian Guitar Review at full retail price with no special ‘back door’ deals. We do have affiliate programs with several companies, however this does not skew our reviews of products. Affiliate marketing, despite what the internet marketers will tell you, is not a lucrative venture and any fees that we raise though this channel solely helps the running of the site (domain fees, registrations etc).
Reviews and feature pieces are not restricted to Australian companies, however will give preference to those companies that are Australian and owner operated.
