Mike Baranik Guitars

I met Mike in LA in January 2003 in a room full of luthiers I had been dying to meet. Most of them were among the most well known contemporary American luthiers. I had never heard of Mike at the time. I played a lot of great guitars that day but kept coming back to the Baraniks.

I've had the privilege to meet some of the finest luthiers around since I started TAMCO and to play some of the finest guitars being made today but I haven't played many that have excited me as much as these acoustic and aesthetic works of art. Mike mixes the great traditions of guitar luthery with some ideas of his own, all bodies are asymmetrical for comfort but you wouldn't notice, bracing patterns are his own too. Mike says that he likes to make the guitars look as good as they sound, say no more!

    Mike Baranik and Kent Hamblin's visit



    Mike Baranik and Kent Hamblin's visit to TAMCO 16 April 2011. Top photo Kent left, Mike right, I forgot to get any photos with myself in but its not a great loss..

    A great time was had by all. Terry Lees (in the pale blue shirt) did a great job of demonstrating Mike and Kent's guitars. He played some fantastic music and discussed their approach to lutherie with them.

    Mike and Kent then did a very informative talk about how they got into guitar making and various aspects of their design and construction techniques.

    The evening meal at Bom-Banes was a blast. Great food, great company and a couple of Jane's incredible songs.

    I think the only conclusion to come to is that it was a great success.

    Oh that magic combination of cedar and ziricote (every cedar/ziricote guitar I have had has been very special). Add the magic of Mike Baranik and you get a very remarkable guitar. Obviously with cedar and ziricote its going to have lots of depth an warmth with strong, well defined bass notes, it takes the genius of a great luthier like Mike to dial in clarity and great definition and projection.

    And.. just look at that detailing.. and you get Mike's unique adjustable action via the neck strap button. There have been many attempts at this but non that I have seen work so easily and so well. Great looks, great sound and great playability.. I've said enough.

It features Sitka spruce, Beeswing Mahogany, Beeswing Mahogany rosette, Rosewood binding with birdseye maple accents, Rosewood tuner buttons and a pinless bridge. It responds brilliantly to being driven hard by the flatpicker but responds equally well to a gentle touch with a very complex and well defined tone, the skilled player can make this guitar do his or her bidding, it looks incredible too.

    Wow! I am used to Mike coming up with spectacular guitars but this is truly amazing. This is the second in of his new model the OOm, the first sold in a few days. I saw some spectacular prototypes but this is even better. Another is due in about a month.

    It has Mike's unique easily adjustable action and a beautiful and useful scalloped cutaway. Oh.. and it looks incredible too.

    Higuerilla is one of the new sustainable woods from Peru imported by Lance and Belinda Peck of Terra Tonewoods that Mike is using. I am hoping to be moving this way with many of the luthiers I work with.
