Mike Terris has been handcrafting exceptional instruments for several decades and for those that know, the craftsmanship and tone of his instruments is of the highest level of quality. Using only the finest grades of wood and other materials his instruments are a sight to behold and to play. One of Mike's amazing skills is to "paint" a picture on his instruments using materials such as inlaid wood, Mother of Pearl, and abalone. And while some may be skilled at creating an instrument that just looks good, a Mike Terris instrument will sound amazing too.
