As a musician, I'm constantly trying to push the limits of my guitar playing. What I look for is equipment that I can truly trust, which in return, makes me feel more confident and therefore helps me discover new territories in music. When I tried out and played Ben Monder's two Ibanez Artstar guitars a few years ago, I immediately knew, my search for a new guitar had ended!
After approaching Ibanez in Germany, I managed to become an official endorser for the company and have been happily playing their instruments for the past three years. I am more than proud to represent and advertise for Ibanez, especially when thinking about the great traditions and reputation this company has built over the last eighty years. Prior to embarking on a recent tour in Finland, Ibanez sent me a new AS-200 guitar that took me about 5 seconds to fell in love with. I felt immediately at home with the instrument and decided to take it to Finland. It was amazing how good it sounded in different rooms and settings. Another visit to Ibanez is planned for this summer and I couldn't be more excited to check out the latest developments at the guitarists candy store.
I will keep you posted! Also, stay tuned for official workshops and clinics which I will be announcing as soon as possible.
