Guitarra Eléctrica Kiesel Carvin Jason Becker JB200C
In 1988, up-and-coming neo classical guitar virtuoso Jason Becker and his Cacophony bandmate Marty Friedman came to Carvin Guitars. Marty took to the V220, while Jason bonded with the more traditional DC200.
The Custom Shop built Jason his dream guitar, a tremolo- equipped DC200. Finished in sapphire blue on flamed maple with a flamed maple fingerboard.
This guitar would become one of Jason’s main instruments. And appeared in magazine articles and print ads, as well as on stage.
Becker fans know the rest of the story: just a week after signing on with the David Lee Roth Band as lead guitarist in 1989. Jason was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease).
Despite being given only 3 to 5 years to live. Jason is still going strong over 20 years later, composing music on a computer. And communicating with his eyes using a system developed by his father.
