For over 20 years Mike Sankey has been building instruments that challenge traditional notions of guitar design and construction. Innovative and iconoclastic, they highlight the contrast between hand building techniques as old as time against cutting-edge manufacturing technologies like 3D printing. With a minimalist design ethos of reducing the guitar to its essentials, the result is that each guitar is a one of a kind work of art.
For the Holy Couch Virtual Guitar Show, Mike will be unveiling two brand new “live edge” electric guitars.
Without co-operation there is no innovation; by meeting at the Holy Grail Guitar Show, I get to share ideas with luthiers and together push the design of the guitar forward towards the future.
