My current musical guitar friend was made by a wonderful guitar maker based in Germany, Armin Hanika.
It’s not a guitar brand what is important, but how each of us can connect with it, express through it, and most importantly, feel ourselves… For years I’ve played a very old guitar, which I’ve got for $100, that’s all I’ve had at that moment. But what a feeling it was!
A genius, which I’ve met on my travels, once said: “I see you play this old instrument. Seems its time for you to try something new. I have a guitar that is rarely played. Come, try it, if you like it, just take it. A guitar should be played, not stored in the cabinet”. And he gifted me with an instrument that have changed my life. Infinite gratitude to Oleg Ponomarev, a great being and a genius musician.
Unfortunately, a guitar from Manuel Rodriguez Guitars, which could be seen in “The Song of the Golden Dragon” performance in Landshut, 2011 got damaged while traveling and eventually, will be repaired.
MR house of guitars generously has made an offer to make a new type of instrument that I will present to the world when the moment comes.
Sometimes I also play the guitar from Antonio Bernal (Seville, Spain).
