Occasionally the origins of the wood selected by a Luthier for a guitar can make for very exciting reading.
Our new Michael Gee guitar has a neck made from Mahogany which in a past life was a Victorian table leg
and the soundboard of the guitar is Spruce which also had a past life, as a 'Stringer' in a Canadian Rail Bridge.

In 1977 after years of study Michael Gee opened his own workshop, making only classical guitars. Since those early days Michael has made over 500 guitars and sent his instruments to over 20 countries around the world.

Each instrument is unique and details such as purfling are entirely hand made. Michael uses the natural colours of woods including rosewood, paduk, ebony, maple and walnut to complement the woods used in his guitars.

Machine work is kept to a minimum as Michael prefers using hand tools - feeling much more in contact and control with the materials he is using.

Many concert performers and teachers have commissioned an instrument from Michael. David Russell, Robert Brightmore, Jose Luis Gonzales, Stephan Rak, Gordon Crosskey, Stanley Yates, Earl Klugh, Hubert Kaple are amongst the many internationally renowned musicians who own and have played Michael's guitars.

Using traditional materials of Brazilian and Indian rosewoods, cedar and spruce Michael makes concert guitars to his own design which he has carefully developed over the past 20 years with the help of many players. His guitars have been described as having exceptionally smooth and warm tone with great projection and excellent separation.

In addition to his own design, Michael makes a guitar based on a 1938 Herman Hauser which he once restored for a customer. He has been making this model for 15 years with great success.

Michael's latest instrument is the most beautiful of guitars. When you see this instrument you first notice the head. Made from the Burr root of a Big Leaf Maple tree and enhanced with a tear drop of Ebony.

Beautifully enhanced by Rodgers machine heads fitted with striking black Mother of Pearl buttons. Depending on the light these buttons display either black or purple alternating as they
move in the light.

The Table is made from European Spruce, Selected Indian or Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides. Finishing can be Shellac French Polished, Lacquered or Oiled to suit your preference.
The Rosette is made from naturally coloured woods to Michael's own design. No artificial colouring is used.



The Beauty of Wood.
Two Michael Gee guitars received during the month of August 2010.
Strikingly different, musically superb.
