What We Think

Weight: 7.05 Lbs

We’ve been working with Michael Tuttle since 2010 and can’t get enough of his quality, consistency, level of detail and the passion he puts into his instruments. His Tuned T 500 series with flame maple tops were built to commemorate his 500th build. He planned on building a limited run of 5 and we ordered 6.

Michael’s guitars are nothing but superb and we can’t wait to celebrate serial number 1000.

Manufacturer's Description from Tuttle

For the past two decades, Michael Tuttle has specialized in the fine art of what it takes to make a piece of wood feel good. Michael makes the necks feel like they're a part of your hands from the moment you pick them up.

Michael Tuttle's background includes stints with Valley Arts and Don Grosh Guitars, where, among other things, he gained a reputation for his fretwork. As a guitar player for the last 30 years, the transition from a professional musician to guitar builder has been a valuable asset to his company. He built his first guitar in the early 80's and in 1993 started building guitars commercially. After 10 years of honing the art of guitar building working for other organizations, it was time to start out on his own. Michael Tuttle Guitars began in 2003. His unique craftsmanship and quality are unparalleled. Once you've played a Tuttle you'll know!

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.
