Ibanez Announces Marcin’s New MRC10 Signature Model
Ibanez’s new acoustic model comes from YouTuber and America’s Got Talent, Marcin.
Marcin has made a name for himself and a following by sharing his musicality and exceptional fingerstyle technique with the world on a variety of social media platforms. He first caught the attention of his native Poland and eventually the world after winning the 9th season of Polish talent show, Must be the Music in 2015. Winning that contest helped launch his career by providing the resources needed to release his debut album, HUSH. He then competed on America’s Got Talent, which further increased his international profile, while his continued presence on Instagram and TikTok has garnered praise from renowned 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 became one of the brand’s most recognizable acoustic artists.
“To make the guitar unique and stand out from the crowd, I wanted the main focal point to be a high gloss white mother of pearl rosette combined with red flame inspired elements, which vaguely reference my logo. This serves as the main feature signature of the guitar from an aesthetic standpoint,” says Marcin.
The Marcin MRC10 features exclusive Ibanez XM bracing, a full Fishman Rare Earth electronics package, and a wooden reinforcement plate under the top to aid in aggressive striking techniques. Other notable features include a solid Sika spruce top, Pau Ferro back and sides, Gotoh 510 machine heads, as well as a custom mother of pearl rosette and 12th fret inlay. The result is an instrument designed with all the tools Marcin needs to perform his unique brand of fingerstyle playing.
