NAMM2015: It’s always a pleasure for us to stop by Lipe Guitars USA and take a look at Mike’s beautiful guitars at NAMM. This year was no different and we were fortunate enough to get our hands on 3 amazing models. Below you’ll find a short video with Mike Lipe, explaining what went into each of these custom guitars. If you like what you see here, they’re on the way to The Music Zoo and they can be pre-ordered by contacting our sales staff at sales@themusiczoo.com or by calling 516-626-9292!
