Jarrell Guitars today announced the release of its new Monte Pittman Signature Guitar – otherwise known as the MPS. With the release of his own signature guitar, the American recording artist now joins the ranks of other guitar impresarios such as Kirk Hammett, Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck.
The exclusively designed guitar series, designed in collaboration with Pittman himself, will be sold in three different versions, including the MPS-1; MPS-f, enhanced with a Floyd Rose ; and MPS-Classic.
The new Jarrell MPS’s crystal clear and exceptionally versatile sound is complemented by its strikingly beautiful design. It is handcrafted out of mahogany and maple wood, and is featured in a sleek white pearl with a silver sparkle finish. Each guitar is accentuated with Seymour Duncan Custom Shop pickups, gorgeous Abalone Colorful inlays along the fingerboard, and Swarovski crystal pointer control knobs.
“It’s a great honor to have my own signature guitar available to the public,” said Pittman. “The Jarrell MPS can handle any style of music out there. It can do everything all of your guitars can do and more.”
“I knew right away with Monte that he had the electricity of greatness,” said Phillip Jarrell, founder of Jarrell Guitars. “He is a true talent. He will always create a new way of melody. Great players are made of music, not fingers. Monte plays with song, and he refuses to repeat what others have done before him. He takes everything to the next step.”
The MPS Series will be unveiled at the 2012 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., between Jan. 19 and 22, 2012. Pricing is still to be determined.
