Pedal Pusher:

Damian Fanelli is the online managing editor at Guitar World. He owns a ZumSteel Encore. When he gets a bit better at it, he'll change "owns a ZumSteel" to "plays a ZumSteel."

Damian Fanelli

Damian is editor-in-chief of Guitar World magazine. From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
