Portland, OR (January 7, 2012) - M-tone Guitars will be launching at the NAMM Show. Owner/builder Matt Proctor will be introducing the three electric guitar models, the Slipstream, the Dynamo and the Stackpole. M-tones are designed to have super long sustain and are very punchy and articulate with great note separation.

Matt designs and hand builds a limited number of electric guitars each year in his Portland, Oregon workshop. Matt trained as a sculptor and spent over 15 years making large-scale works out of steel, wood, and cast metals before turning his attention to guitar design.

• One-of-a-kind finishes in environmentally agreeable water-based lacquer
