Joe Catanese

Joe Catanese

My name is Joe Catanese. I have been playing guitar for 20 years. I am currently the lead vocalist/ rhythm guitarist for the band Mcband. Every guitar player looks for that sound, that feel and connection with every guitar they play. Gimenez Guitars is where it is at. Years ago, while in California about to play the Whiskey a Go Go, my friend Frank Guy of For the Kill kept talking about this guitar brand Gimenez Guitars from back home in Long Island. Saying how he’d get rid of everything he owned to grab one. So, I followed the Facebook page. I said tuners on the bottom? I watched what Dan had been creating for about two years. One day, Dan posted a picture of a flying v design. So, I immediately  messaged him, gave him my two cents not thinking he would respond. Within 30 minutes, we were spitting out ideas on the phone. Right there we became good friends over the Velina V. I could hear in his voice how passionate he was about building guitars, and I knew he was going to knock this out of the park. I recommended Randy Rhoads small wings and a v that would fit nicely into a Strat case. And one single humbucker, no tone, solely featuring a volume pot. Because let’s be honest, no one uses tone pots on a flying v. The flame maple top is thicker than any other brand out there, and it is the high-end sports car of guitars. Dan needed a name for this masterpiece, and I recommended my daughter’s name, Velina, not thinking it would take. But it was the same quick reaction of the name that happened with all the specs Dan came up with.

Any idea Dan or I had was easy to agree on. It was truly amazing talking to someone who had the same vision as what was in my head and on paper. It came out better than expected! I was so blown away about how my v played that I went to the local music store, All Music in Plainview, and traded three guitars for my Saint. The stability is incredible. When you play one it feels sturdy. It feels just how a guitar should be made. I am very honored to be a Gimenez artist. These guitars are the epitome of guitar craftsmanship. Get yourself one asap and I promise you’ll never put it down.
