About L.A. Music
L.A. Music Store opened its doors on Lakeshore Rd E. in Mississauga on September 1, 1978.

Michael Angelo Batio - MAB
Michael Angelo Batio was voted “No. 1 Shredder of ALL TIME” Guitar One Magazine, 2003, voted one of the “Top 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists of ALL TIME” Guitar World Magazine, and voted one of the "20 Greatest Shredders of All Time" by Total Guitar Magazine, both in April 2008.
Michael invented and was the world’s first player of the twin-necked, left and right-handed Double-Guitar. He plays the guitar right or left-handed. He also plays both guitars together in harmonies or two separate parts together at the same time.
Michael is well known for his signature stage move called the “MAB Over-Under” technique, which is now used on stage as a standard technique by many Rock and Metal guitarists.
On August 29th, 2006, and with assistance from Dean Guitars, Michael Angelo Batio showed us his stuff in a stellar performance, and was gracious enough to meet and sign some autographs for his fans afterwards. We all had an incredible time! Special thanks to Michael Angelo Batio and Dean Guitars.
