Patrick Bruce Metheny

Here’s the first Pointy Guitar appearance for ultra-decorated jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. I mean, the guy has 19 Grammy Awards, multiple gold albums, and countless poll wins. So it’s no wonder he had his own signature Ibanez model, the PM100. When this ad ran in ’96 Metheny was typically busy: He appeared on The Sign of 4 with fellow legend Derek Bailey, Pursuance with sax great Kenny Garrett, the Passaggio per il paradiso soundtrack, and his own group’s album Quartet.
