    When I saw the picture of the headstock against the backdrop of the building, I felt like I was watching the Davinci Code.

    That was great, thank you.


    This Bach recording is quite beautiful, thanks for that.

    Yes, I never realized there were recordings with Mario on classical guitar. He was amazingly good player.

    That was fun to read, great insights. Thank you!

    How the heck did I not see this before and I've been here a day longer than ages?!

    Thanks, I enjoyed reading that. Is much known about what happened to him after his brief stint with Selmer? Wikipedia says he died in 1993, about sixty years after that time. I know he made that plastic guitar and was involved in the Ibanez Macs but not much else beyond that. Was he connected with the gypsy jazz scene in any way later in life? I wonder if he ever actually met Django?

    Wiki also says his career as a classical player was cut short by a hand injury which is ironic.
