Diamondhead Ukulele

Although Matt Artinger is renowned for his fabulous semi-hollow, archtop, and solid bodied guitars, he also is a masterful builder of acoustic guitars and other unique stringed instruments- Take this beautiful traditional soprano ukulele! A stunner by any definition! photo ablog b diamond head.jpg photo 1auke blogg.jpg photo 1 uke blog.jpg photo 2 blog uke.jpg photo a111blohhh.jpg

A Hole in One

Matt Artinger is constantly experimenting with the optimal design of sound projection from his guitars, and this model is no exception. The combination of its unique sound port and humbucking pickup, combined with the bracing on this hollowbody instrument give it a tone and projection to die for! photo 1b walnut.jpg photo 1c walnut.jpg photo 1a walnut.jpg photo 1d walnut.jpg

THE MARSHALL CONNECTION

As a photographer in the entertainment field, I meet all kinds of interesting and talented people. One of my old friends, bassist extraordinaire Jason Gano is also a Vice President with Marshall Amplification, manufacturers of some of the most iconic guitar amplifiers in the history of rock & roll! It seemed only natural that Artinger guitars and Marshall amps were destined to meet up to create some special sonic mayhem, so when Jason suggested loaning me a ’58X re-issue for a photo session and window shattering workout, who was I to argue? As my neighbors will attest, the results were musical madness, in the best possible way. As for the beauty of Matt’s guitars, well, you can make up your own mind. ( I, of course, am biased!)  photo Marshall Artinger photo copyright Michael G. Stewart1.jpg photo Marshall Artinger photo copyright Michael G.
