Venezuelan 14-string guitarist Felix Martin -- who recently completed a successful six-week, 12-country European tour with his trio -- will soon embark on his first-ever American tour, which focuses on the western U.S. and includes four shows in the greater Los Angeles area.

Martin will be out in support of his Prosthetic debut “Live in Boston,” which compiles a series of live sets recorded during his days as a student at the prestigious Berklee School of Music. You can pick up a copy from the Prosthetic webstore here.

Felix commented about the upcoming tour as follows: “Alright! It’s my first time touring the U.S.! I'm extremely excited and have been practicing odd meters 25 hours a day for you!”

Felix Martin caught the attention of Prosthetic Records with his self-invented instrument, the 14-string guitar, which is a combination of two left-handed 7-string guitars on one wide neck that allows both to be played simultaneously.

You can see a live video showcasing his unique sound - a combination of instrumental prog-metal and jazz fusion - by viewing the below video for "The Triangle Tune" (taken from "Live In Boston"). Martin will release a new studio album in early 2013.
