“Mike is a total artist and human being. His instruments are a meditation on sound and material that lead him in directions that often blur the lines between known guitar classifications. — Beau Bledsoe
“The guitar I possess is a perfect amalgamation of my childhood cowboy guitar, a Martin 00-15, and those small 19th Century Spanish flamenco guitars. This guitar demands to be passed around at a campfire and has the energy of an old drinking buddy even though it is a new instrument.
“Mike’s instruments are best experienced in person and sampled one by one like going to an art exhibition. Each is truly unique and delivers something very different than the next. I often think of the great Texas troubadour and guitar-maker, Guy Clark, when playing his instruments.”
