I travel a lot and tend to buy guitar magazines to kill time (I've noticed that few of the people in the magazine wear tan pants.) But the odd thing is, the magazines almost never talk about stuff that we talk about here on TGP -- even the stuff in the Guitars in General or the Recording forums. They mostly have lightweight celebrity profiles, and even then, they're mostly profiles of people we all know about -- Slash, Bonamassa, Perry, Clapton, etc. They also do all kinds of reviews of equipment that almost none of us will ever buy, just because we don't usually buy equipment based on reviews in magazines, we buy it because we need to fill a hole in our equipment line-up. In other words, they don't really spend much time talking about the problems and issues experienced by their readers. I wonder if that's just the nature of magazine journalism -- trying to find homogenized topics that will appeal to the widest range of readers -- or if the editors of these things just don't know what they're doing? It seems to me that if they'd go out and read guitar forums online, they'd begin to get a hint of what actual guitar players are concerned about, and maybe play more to the social and career aspects of guitar life.
