What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This is it - this is the guitar. The one that felt like home the minute she hit my hands. Michael Tuttle's fretwork has built up a heavily regarded reputation over the years and pieces like this completely justify the noise. The roasted maple neck is the perfect C, a .830, and your hands just effortlessly glide up and down the entire fretboard. The alder body has the sweetest midrange that'll sing you to sleep with sparkling treble frequencies and a tight bass response to round out a bold and balanced sound. The sonic blue nitro finish is an immediate eye-catcher, but it's the way this piece plays that'll have you hooked. It's guitars like this that remind us of why Michael Tuttle is regarded as a world-class luthier.

Manufacturer's Description from Tuttle

That's what you get with Michael Tuttle Guitars 

For the past two decades Michael 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.
