Felix Martin Designs 14 String Guitar, Posts New Song "Tango"
Genre-defying 14-string guitarist Felix Martin has unveiled a second track from his upcoming Prosthetic studio debut, “The Scenic Album.”
Scheduled for release on September 17 via Prosthetic Records, the album showcases Martin’s unique combination of instrumental progressive metal, jazz fusion, funk, and world music, with additional performances by bassist Nathan Navarro - a fellow graduate of the Berklee School of Music - and drummer Marco Minnemann (Necrophagist, The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson). Watch the play-through video for the three-part “Tango” below (courtesy of PureGrainAudio.com).
Additionally, Felix Martin has announced the completion of his self-designed 14-string guitar, “The Jazz Metal Machine" (pictured after the jump), named due to its concept that allows a traditional jazz guitar sound to be played with a huge amount of distortion.
Unlike Martin’s usual setup with two seven-string guitars sharing one wide neck, this new design combines an 8-string neck with a 6-string neck and will also feature the first-ever 8-string jazz pickups, made by Seymour Duncan.
