With his music videos having Internet views exceeding 200 million and bookings in every corner of the globe, Luca Stricagnoli is considered to be one of the most unique guitarists in the world. Luca’s creative style, which led him to invent instruments like the Reversed Triple Neck Guitar and the Reversed Slide Neck, vastly contributed to the modern evolution of acoustic guitar.
He has been hailed as a phenomenon and a prodigy by influential magazines and newspapers all over the world, including NME, Guitar World, Der Spiegel, La Repubblica, Daily Sabah, Frankfurter Allgemeine and more.
His music gave him the chance to play in over 20 countries, in front of up to 12.000 people, and even grabbed the attention of famous bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Walk Off The Earth.
Luca started his career at the age of 10, studying classical guitar and later attending the Conservatory, the most prestigious music school in Italy. He excelled in classical competitions, placing 1st at the contest “Cittá di Lissone”, and when he finally discovered Fingerstyle Guitar, he began spending endless hours on YouTube, learning techniques just by watching videos. Using his acoustic guitar, he won even more competitions, such as the Acoustic Guitar Contest “VII Festival Internazionale Della Chitarra di Fiuggi” with a score of 100/100, the “Festival dei Talenti” and an opportunity to open for Legendary Italian band New Trolls. Meanwhile, Luca met the Italian luthier Davide Serracini, with whom he collaborated ever since.
