Renowned YouTube gear demo extraordinaire Ryan “Fluff” Bruce, recently asked Markus to donate a little shred to his upcoming video for Pigtronix (with whom Markus is endorsed). Markus happily obliged, so if you’d like to see the end result of this collaborative effort, watch the video!
Markus’ guest solo is at about the one minute mark, but stick around for the pedal demos at the end, to see how this shred-enhancements do their thing!

Additionally, Fastback Custom Pickups welcomed Markus with Fluff’s signature high gain pickups-The Beard Combers. Beard Combers are hand wound with modern high gain. They offer Mid and high transparent clarity, and allow for fast response and balanced tones for low tunings.
“Due to serious family issues John Paul Glovasa of 4ARM was forced to make the difficult decision to step down from his position as lead guitarist in the band! With a bunch of European festival dates coming up the 4ARM began the search for the man that would become the new lead guitarist of 4ARM. After hours of youtube clips and file sharing the guys narrowed in on Chicago-based guitarist Markus Johansson!”
‘We were able to kinda speak the same language right from the first time we met,’ says frontman Danny Tomb. ‘He just ticked all the right boxes for us, I really felt that I was already talking to “the new guy.”‘
Johansson who is a self taught lead guitarist from Chicago, U.S.A has kept busy through the years working on Sylencer’s A Lethal Dose of Truth with members from ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, DREAM THEATER, HALFORD and FORBIDDEN.”
