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.

3 SINGLE COILS

The classic strat line up of 3 single coil pickups in an amazing Matt Artinger package! Just look at that figuring on the top & the sweepingly sensuous carve of the back! All the spank you’d expect, but dressed up for a night at the Ball- photo afbIMG_4151.jpg photo bIMG_4501 copy.jpg photo bIMG_4488 copy.jpg photo bIMG_4481 copy.jpg


PIN UP GUITARS

We hate to be sexist, but sometimes there is just nothing like a magnificent example of the luthier’s art in the hands of a stunningly beautiful woman! All those curves just seem to compliment each other, and you can clearly see where the early instrument builders got their inspiration, so just enjoy- A feast for the eyes and ears! photo Jane Marie Kane photo Michael G.

TOKYO ROSIE

Inspired by the early 60’s Asian Invasion of way-out, veg-o-matic, over the top, anything goes space-age styling of the Japanese guitars that poured into the U.S. like an amplified tsunami, The Tokyo Rosie is an eye catching, ear shattering monster of an instrument that is capable of crushing unsuspecting cities with its monstrous tone and awesome sonic power, yet gentle enough to make Hello Kitty seem like a tiger! With its 6 mini toggle switches sending a Telestar like message into the stratosphere, this little baby will make everyone sit up and take notice! photo afbbIMG_4549.jpg photo Artinger Godzilla.jpg photo artinger blog tokyo1.jpg
