B.J. Golden

At Summer NAMM 2018 in Nashville last July, Mr. B.J. Golden, guitarist for country western singing star Brantley Gilbert, stopped our booth and played a Model MX guitar, hear him play using the link below. Based upon his initial impression of the MX, B.J. decided to comission Ernesto Caro to build him a custom flamenco guitar based on design elements of the MX which was delivered in early November 2018. B.J. is now using this beautiful guitar in concert performances with Mr. Glibert where a fine concert guitar is required.
