Monte Pittman has the magic axe for the MDNA Tour!

Guitar player extra-ordinaire and incredibly versatile, Monte Pittman gave to Phillip Jarrell (of Jarrell Guitars) a great challenge when he asked him to make a guitar that can cover all the styles he plays. And you know what? They did it!

Monte, Jarrell Guitars and Seymour Duncan proudly present the Jarrell MPS, for which Monte talks about on RUST Magazine. The MPS is the only electric guitar that Monte uses for the whole MDNA show! (we still miss his arsenal of Gibsons!)
