What We Think

I could not detect any difference in tone with the "Thin Skin" poly finish rather than Michael's lacquer that he uses on his Custom Classic !!!

Wait till you hear the clip :)

Manufacturer's Description from Tuttle

Standard Classic T #1 !!!!!

Michael Tuttle Guitars

About Manufacturer

We are so fortunate to work with the builders that we represent. Over the years, we've been lucky enough to get on board early with companies that had their act together before the "guitar world" discovered them. Several years back, two people (whose opinions we deeply respect) said we had to check out Michael's guitars. Michael sent us an S and T, and we sold the S model to the first person who heard it! Needless to say, we knew we were on to something. Tuttle has been building for over 20 years and got his start working at Valley Arts in California with Don Grosh, whom he worked with at Grosh Guitars. In 2003, Michael started Tuttle Guitars. Michael's attention to detail is very evident. Being a small builder (Michael’s team consists of himself and an assistant), everything needs to be right the first time out. This is a huge benefit for the player, as there can be no "Monday or Friday" guitars. We’ve always loved it when the guy’s name that's on the headstock had his hands all over the instrument when it was built - his reputation and quality of work is on the line every time one of his creations goes out the door. It's wonderful when you put one of Michaels guitars in a player's hands for the first time and watch their reaction. Michael is such a talented builder, and we are lucky to have such a positive relationship with him as a shop.
