A letter from Matt
I've been a guitarist since age 14, been working on my gear since I was 16, and performing since I was 18. But like many, I often set music aside for a time to focus on what people told me I should care about. I lived in the rat race, ruled by the corporate grind.
But in 2020, I woke up. Enough was enough. Life is short, and music is my passion.
Now here we are, together, sharing a community built around the most inspiring musical force in our lives, the guitar. I am home and glad to have you here with me.
- Matt Ackerman (Owner)
