Michi Matsuda

Repair Crew Member

Once upon a time in a land far away, Michi caught the guitar building bug and moved from Japan to Arizona to attend the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery. Culture shock obviously doesn’t faze him, and he’s been working on guitars ever since.

Michi has been working with us at Gryphon for over a decade. Presently, he’s here one day per week resetting necks and performing other demanding repairs and restorations. When not at Gryphon, he’s in his Redwood City workshop building beautiful, one-of-a-kind guitars. Although he sells his instruments to players and collectors all over the world, many go to buyers in, you guessed it, Japan!
