Nick Kariotis is a guitar player from Greece.
He started playing classical guitar at the age of 7, mostly influenced by Greek music and some classical stuff. At the age of 16, he started getting into heavy metal bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden etc. and got his first electric guitar. With influences in music like Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Jeff Loomis and many others , his guitar skills started to develop. He also took some private lessons with one of the most talented guitar players in Greece, Kosta Vreto ( Wardrum, Jaded Star ) .
Kosta Vreto quotes: “Nick possesses a unique and deep understanding of music and approaches every song with a balanced mix of technique and melody. A well rounded guitar player and musician!”
His first contact with Fishman pickups was after looking for something to make his tone more transparent and unique. Tried Fluence Modern pickups and after a little bit of research , Tosin Abasi’s set was the perfect fit for his Ibanez Universe 7 string.
“On your quest to the ultimate tone , Fishman Pickups is your final destination!”
