Hello, I'm Michael. I'm a guitar maker who has been living in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest for the past thirty years. My first infatuation with instrumental guitar began with a different group of "classical" artists in the early 70's, steel string guitar soloists like John Fahey, and Leo Kottke. The love of their music was a major reason for my pursuing the craft of guitar making. During my early years I almost exclusively built steel string instruments. But, as my interest in classical music--interpreted by the greats like Bream and Parkening--evolved, so has my interest in the construction of nylon stringed instruments.

I look forward to using this forum not only as an aide in my building, but also as a resource to increase my appreciation and expand my knowledge of the artists who create original or adapt classical music to the guitar.
