Professional studio recorded guitars

I'm a professional guitarist, studio musician and composer based in Serbia. I lead a well known Serbian band called Vanya con Trios (check out youtube). Have 3 albums, hundreds of gigs and shows behind me.

I own and operate a well equipped music studio, and have a vast arsenal of vintage guitars, quality guitar amps, acoustic guitars, pedals, studio tube microphones and preamps.

I will record professional guitar tracks (acoustic and/or electric) for your songs. I am a creative, fluent musician with a delicate ear. I can play without scores or sheets.

I can work with a number of different instruments and amps, to achieve different sounds - 1976 Fender Strat, 60th Anniversary Fender Strat, PRS Custom 24, Fender American Tele, Martin D28, Martin 000-15m, Kala Ukulele, '77 Marshall 2203 w/ 4x12 1982b cabinet, Fender Blues Deluxe, Sessionette 75, Vox AC4TV

Looking forward to working with you!

    I am extremely happy with the work Vanja did on my song. Everything was within a short time period and the playing as well as the sound quality of the tracks is no less than professional. He's also very detailed with communications and makes it a point to understand exactly what the client is looking for.
