Regardless of whether you're talking about homes, cars, jewelry, or guitars, something about the word "custom" sounds pretty damn expensive. So when we came across a luthier (translation: guitar maker) that sells a majority of his beautifully crafted custom guitars for under $600, we were pretty much knocked off our feet. After springing at the opportunity to have a Mike Gee Kustoms guitar of our own, the folks here at The Uncommon Thread wanted to find out more about the man crazy enough to go up against Guitar Economics 101. Mike himself brought us up to speed on his journey of becoming an industry leader, how he'd hack it out on a desert island, and the hidden talent that's frankly good enough to make MacGyver quit his day job. Mike Gee is out to challenge everything we know about the finer things in life by proving you really can have it all, trust fund not required.
