Bryce Jacobs - Magnum

Bryce Jacobs


Bryce and his Caldersmith magnum guitar are getting more Hollywood moments! This time it's the new Dream Works animated film "Puss in Boots" featuring a Spanish ginger cat roaming the wild west with Antonio Banderas as the voice.
The film has a hugely guitar driven score in which Bryce had to play a few different string instruments with the only nylon guitar being the magnum. "It's hilarious stuff ........... and there are many nice emotional moments in the score where the Magnum gets to really sing out".
