GTR would like to thank Jason Nelson as the first artist to endorse GTR guitars.
Jason was born in Adak, Alaska. He found his passion for guitar from his older brother Brent. It was at age 14 when he picked up the guitar and knew he’d found his calling
Jason is a student of all the greats like Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Gary Moore, Stevie Ray, Jim Hendrix, and the list goes on, borrowing everything he could to create his own unique sound.
Jason was frontman of band Soul Vitamins. He now is lead guitarist in Dirty Canteen, a party rock band. Jason and Dirty Canteen has played the Wisconsin state fair and Summerfest opening for Jason Derulo most recently. In 2016 Jason and his GTR guitar took the stage at Buddy Guy’s Legends with friend Mark Ricky. This would mark the first time a GTR guitar would grace the stage at Mr. Buddy Guys place!
Jason current projects include the forming of a blues trio featuring original songs for upcoming album, Maybe My Guitar Will Save My Soul.
