Ibanez Announces Marcin's MRC10 Signature Acoustic

Ibanez Announces Marcin's MRC10 Signature Acoustic

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.

Features

The Marcin MRC10 features proprietary Ibanez X-M bracing, a full Fishman Rare Earth electronics package, and a wood reinforcement plate under the top to facilitate aggressive tapping techniques. Other notable features include a solid Sika Spruce top, Pau Ferro back and sides, Gotoh 510 tuners, along with a custom mother-of-pearl rosette and 12th fret inlay. The result is an instrument engineered with all the tools Marcin requires to execute his unique brand of fingerstyle playing.
