Title: John Miller mentioned in current Fretboard Journal

"However, the OM was rediscovered in the late 1960s by players like Eric Schoenberg and John Miller, who felt the guitar's balanced bass-to-treble response was better-suited to the complex fingerstyle technique they were pioneering than the booming bass-heavy sound of dreadnoughts."

Good eye Outfidel, I read the article and missed the reference to John! 

The Fretboard Journal quarterly, IMO, has turned out to be a very fine magazine... it has just gotten better.  It really appeals to me and my various interests - acoustic guitars, electric guitars, oddball fretted instruments, luthiers, players - there seems to always be one country blues or blues related article as well.  We started talking about it here, but never followed up:

Alex, hang on to that out of print first issue -- this issue mentions that one went for 300 bucks on eBay.  I'm holding out for 500.  :P

John:

Will do!

I to like this publication a lot, it's the only guitar mag I get that I read cover-to-cover. Excellent photography.
