Marc Playle was born in South Shields, England, UK on September 26th 1985. He first took an interest in playing guitar at the age of 14 when he and his friend Daniel were bored in the long summer holidays.
He converted half of his garage into a studio where he used to jam with his friends.
Having a missing left forearm meant he had to experiment to figure out the best way he could be able to play guitar.
After many ideas such as taping guitar picks to his arm and using socks and things he came up with the idea for a player which is a cast of his arm that was then made from acrylic resin. It has lots of features that enable him to do most techniques on the guitar such as: a cut out for palm muting and pinch harmonics, a part of a guitar pick for picking and a cut out of a leather belt used for tapping.
Marc has quite a story…and quite a talent. Not to mention an amazing drive to overcome anything that might get in the way of him playing his guitar.
