Musician’s Friend Features Michael Jackson Guitarist Orianthi as Its Cover Star and Launches Improved, User-Friendly Virtual Catalog

Music gear marketer Musician’s Friend will feature master shredder Orianthi Panagaris on the cover of its May 2010 Electric Guitar Edition catalog and is presenting an interview video in which she talks about her new PRS Signature SE guitar, her gear, and her meteoric career playing with some of the biggest icons in rock.

Aside from being the first solo female performer to grace the Musician’s Friend cover, the Australian-born artist is on her way to becoming a rock legend in her own right thanks to her artistry on the electric guitar and her songwriting skills. Orianthi’s hit “According To You” was released on her second album Believe, in October 2009, and she has worked with some of the biggest names in the rock arena, including Steve Vai and Carlos Santana. Orianthi was also handpicked by the late Michael Jackson to play on his “This Is It” tour.

Musician’s Friend has also introduced an online version of its monthly catalog, allowing customers to interactively browse for music gear in the familiar catalog format. The new print catalog also offers compatibility with 3G smartphones allowing readers to snap a picture of an imprinted tag that then directs the user’s web browser to additional online information at the Musician’s Friend website.
