This may seem like an odd story for us to be reporting, but believe us when we say it … Kenny G's son absolutely shreds on guitar. Yes, that Kenny G. Don't believe us? We've got the proof right here.

Max Gorelick is the son of the curly haired smooth jazz saxophonist, who has somehow sold over 75 million albums worldwide and has been the butt of an endless amount of jokes in his time. Regardless, musical prowess definitely runs in the family, as demonstrated by Gorelick's shredding for a YouTube-based Mayones / Seymour Duncan guitar solo contest.

Polish guitar company Mayones and Seymour Duncan pickups are hosting the contest, where the player of the sickest solo will win a brand new Mayones Reguis 7 Custom guitar. The worldwide competition will also award the five finalists with a set of Seymour Duncan pickups.

Even Megadeth gave Gorelick their stamp of approval via Facebook, by posting, "His dad may live in your elevator, but Kenny G's kid shreds!" Not a bad endorsement at all, especially when Megadeth share the video with their 5 million Facebook fans.
