Based on a discussion in the Guitar Summit mailing list I am posting links to online guitar research resources.
I have made available PDF files of all issues of Takei Morishige’s journal Mandorin to Gitaa Kenkyu Shiryo (Mandolin and Guitar Research Articles) which was published from January, 1942 to November, 1943. Each issue was only 4 pages and printed on a single, folded piece of newsprint. The journal ended publication due to a paper shortage during the war. Takei’s publishing activities started in 1916 with his journal titled “Mandolin and Guitar”.
UPDATE May 2011: A table of contents list in both Japanese and English is now available.
