Today, we have the honor of featuring Mason Sacks, an exceptionally talented guitarist, songwriter, and producer signed to Sony ATV, who utilizes the Jamstik MIDI guitar on a daily basis in his studio and songwriting sessions.

He has also collaborated with an impressive array of creators such as Rodney Jerkins, Charlie Handsome, T Minus, Louis Bell, Carter Lang, and Ali Tamposi.
