— MusicRadar (UK guitar magazine)
“Alexandr Misko is the future of acoustic guitar. People have watched my generation play and said "That's it, that's the limit, nobody can take the guitar any further." But that would be a tragedy to me. The moment I first saw Alexandr my heart filled up with relief and joy, as I saw that they had been wrong”
