Michael Aaron Einziger (born June 21, 1976 in Los Angeles, California) is a Grammy-nominated musician known as the co-writer and guitarist of the alternative rock band Incubus. Einziger is widely known as an innovator of the use of pedalboard guitar effects during live concerts, and was voted #41 in Total Guitar’s top 100 guitarists of all time in 2002. In an interview with Gibson Guitars, writer Steven Rosen states [Einziger] hasn’t played the guitar so much as he has manipulated it submitted it to his own needs.
