Mr. Big vocalist Eric Martin is about to embark on a solo acoustic tour of Europe, and he'll be taking a new guitar with him.

In his latest email newsletter, Martin writes:

"We'll I'm all packed up and ready to leave bright and early for my solo acoustic tour of Europe. I got myself a brand new Gibson guitar and can't wait to play it on this tour."

He adds, "I'll be trekking through Europe for the entire month of March and then I'll head home for a week and head right back to Europe with Avantasia. I'll be hanging with these guys for the rest of the summer as well. Looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces."

Thanks for the shout-out, Eric!
