Video: Carvin Creates One-of-a-Kind, Michael Jackson-Inspired Guitar for Jason Becker
Below, check out a brand-new video that shows the story behind Jason Becker's one-of-a-kind, Michael Jackson-inspired Carvin guitar.
"Even as I was trying to become a rock god, Michael Jackson was the ultimate magic rock star to me," Becker said.
"I loved his music, his scene and style. He transcended musical categories.
"Everyone dug Michael, and I was no exception. I was inspired by his flash, uniqueness and kick-ass music. I wanted to be slick like him. It also didn't hurt that he liked to rock and used Eddie Van Halen on 'Beat It.'
"I've always wanted a guitar that reflects his style."
See what Carvin came up with!
