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!)
