Shanti

When Michael Hornick began building his first steel-stringed guitar in the summer of 1984, he realized immediately that he had found his passion in the world of woodworking. Woodworking has always been a part of his life, but guitar building, in particular, brought together those key elements that could transform an interest into a life's work. Michael was always fascinated by guitars and guitar music, as well as the beauty of forms created from wood. His approach to guitar building reflects his desire to achieve the perfect balance of visual, tactile and musical aesthetics.
