Frank Gambale, born on December 22, 1958, is an Australian jazz fusion guitarist who has made many innovations in his field, such as the techniques known as 'sweep picking' and 'economy picking'. He has released over 20 solo albums, from his influential debut Brave New Guitar in 1985 to Soulmine in 2012, in addition to having worked with Chick Corea in his Elektric Band, with Maurizio Colonna and the GHS group. Among his best-known admirers are people like Jerry Garcia, Greg Howe and Pat Metheny.
Gambale has a signature model called the Frank Gambale Model (FGM) by Ibanez; another called AES-FG by Yamaha; and is also known for using semi-hollowed models by Kiesel. Guitars Exchange caught up with Frank Gambale during his stay in Madrid for the presentation of his new Signature model, made in collaboration with Cort.
