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.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
