I met Mahaan few years back while we invited him to an special episode of Guitar Never Lies-The Radio show, in recent times I found he is one of the coolest fingerstyle acoustic guitar players, plus who thinks about his sound. Mahaan already has an instrumental album released and recently formed a band named as “NONTA BISCUIT” who just did their debut. Recently I had a talk with him and below is his present rig.
