Ibanez' newest acoustic model comes from YouTuber and America's Got Talent alum, Marcin.
Marcin has made a name for himself and built a following by sharing his musicianship and exceptional fingerstyle technique with the world across a variety of social media platforms. He first gained the attention of his native Poland and ultimately the world after winning the 9th season of the Polish talent show, Must be the Music in 2015. Winning this competition helped springboard his career by providing the resources to release his debut album, HUSH. He later competed on America's Got Talent, which raised his international profile even further, while his continued presence on Instagram and TikTok led to praise from high-profile guitarists such as Tom Morello, Paul Stanley, Dweezil Zappa, Tosin Abasi, and Vernon Reid. Then, in 2018, Marcin officially became an Ibanez artist, and he went on to become one of the brand’s most recognizable acoustic artists.
"To make the guitar unique and stand out from others, I wanted the main focal point to be a really bright, white mother of pearl rosette combined with red flame-inspired elements, which loosely references my logo. This serves as the main signature feature of the guitar from an aesthetic standpoint," says Marcin.

Fender honors the indie-legend with signature pickups and accessories.
Fender announces the J Mascis Signature Jazzmaster Pickups, an ode to one of alternative music’s most prolific shredders. Throughout Dinosaur Jr’s twelve album discography and his rich solo career, Mascis has established himself as one of guitar playing’s most tone-savvy and ferocious players.
At the heart of his genre-defining, nearly four decades-long legacy is the Fender Jazzmaster. Not only does the bold and angular design of the Jazzmaster lend itself to a player as subversive as Mascis, but there is no instrument that sounds quite like it. That is, until now.
Compared to the tones on the Fender J Mascis Signature Telecaster and the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster, Mascis notes,“The new pickups have a sweeter more vintage sound,” and as his hopes for what people might feel when they test out the new pickups, J Mascis adds, “I hope they feel like playing their guitar, ideally they could make a song that could be my new favorite record!”
Key Features Include:
- Neck Pickup: 7.27K and Bridge Pickup: 7.31K DC Resistance
- Neck Pickup: 3.6 Henries, Bridge Pickup: 3.7 Henries Inductance
- Enamel-coated magnet wire delivers warm vintage-style tones
- Alnico 2 rod magnets for warm, sweet output
- Flush-mount pole pieces produce even string response
- Installation hardware include
