"Matt’s respect for classic aesthetics combined with his unique brand of ingenuity creates a balance of tone and playability that feels old quick, in all the right ways.""

"Frankly, the entire process was a joy to be a part of and the bass has impressed me deeply (and trust me, that is NOT an easy thing to do). I think that your care in the build, the woods and overall design has resulted in something unique."

Grant Duncan

"I have just purchased my second handmade Instrument from Matt Maranger. It is precise and refined in a way I have never known an instrument to be, but make no mistake, it is all character. It has a smell that makes me remember working with my father as a child, the smell of oil, of machines, of a working mans hands. For the first time in my personal musical life I feel I have something to live up to, inspiration like that doesn't come along often."

Matt, this instrument is incredible! You did an amazing job! Got it yesterday and still can't stop playing it. Thank you so, so much! I look forward to ordering a guitar from you in the future. Matt is the man! The guitar is like gold! It's absolutely incredible in every way!"

"What an incredible person. So passionate and caring. I am so very grateful to inherit his art. Man, I am so excited, I really can not thank you enough. Also, crazy fast shipping and communication was great. But again, what a guy. Truly honored my man. Thanks again."
