Sankey Guitars
Michael Sankey

Mike Sankey has been building guitars since 1997. He specializes in modern and minimalist instruments, letting the wood and the music speak for themselves. Each one is given a name, not a serial number, because each is unique. He designs and tailors custom electric, acoustic, and archtop guitars to meet the specific needs of each guitarist.


»I’ve always been the type of person who looks at things and says to himself, »how is this made, and how can I make this better? It takes a leap of creativity to imagine how a guitar could be different and better. I am dedicated to the pursuit of making guitars that push these boundaries.«

At the Holy Grail Guitar Show I hope to see what the best musicians can do with my guitars and to find the ones who aren’t afraid to play something different.
