Brian Michael

  • Repair Crew Member

Brian is our Chief Repair guy. As a youngster in New Hampshire he had a natural affinity for playing guitar. Being a hands-on sort of fellow he spent many a youthful afternoon setting up, modifying and repairing his own instruments. He moved west to Phoenix to attend the Roberto-Venn School of Lutherie. We heard he was the best in his class so after graduating in 2002 he answered Frank’s call and came even further west to work at Gryphon.

When not at Gryphon, Brian builds electric guitars and basses in his home shop and has had the good fortune to have his instruments tour the world in the hands of Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famers. After joining his first band at age 15, Brian has been hooked on making music. Currently he plays bass and sings with his band “Fictitious Beast” along with fellow repair guy James.
