There’s something about the feel of a Michael Tuttle guitar that’s just impossible to beat. Every note seems to blossom more intensely, and decay more delicately than you’re used to. Each chord thunders against your chest like a finely tuned drum. It simultaneously makes you feel like you could do no wrong, and motivates you to improve. Simply put, a Tuttle guitar feels like an extension of your body.
A life-long guitar player, Michael Tuttle spent his early career as a luthier building for Valley Arts and Dan Grosh, where he developed a reputation for his immaculate fretwork. When he started building commercially under his own name in 1993, he already had a host of design ideas in mind. His instruments are in keeping with the Fender and Gibson tradition while boasting an ease of playability and tonal clarity all their own.
