DiMarzio Guitar Couture


DiMarzio couture PICK UPS (and accessories) is to the guitar/rock world what Dolce is to fashion. You may have never picked up a guitar in your life but you are I'm sure familiar with a few of DiMarzio's celebrity guitar clients Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John 5 (guitarist for Marilyn Manson & Rob Zombie) to name a few.
I am truly blessed to be working on some DiMarzio exclusive SWAG that will be available soon to the DiMarzio online store. Be a rock star and check out
http://www.dimarzio.com/ to see what celebs on the rock scene are sporting. I felt it important to blog about what a pleasure it has been working with DiMarzio and what a sophisticated person Mr.DiMarzio is. Where most big business source out the creative side of branding, the DiMarzio team takes great pride and are very hands on with the brand. You can also visit the DiMarzio online magazine "FeedBack" and see exclusive DiMarzio celebrity rocker photo's and interviews. I remain a loyal fan of the DiMarzio brand and the DiMarzio SWAG!
