MICSIS GUITAR SPOT BY MIKE SISON
« on: January 11, 2011, 04:38:44 AM »
              He was referred to me by Turi since I needed someone new to maintain my guitars and I wanted someone who is O.C when it comes to setting up axes. I went to him last sunday coming from Libis to Sucat. Yes! it was that far however when I brought my new Tele copy and Fernandes Strat for a full setup I was really happy afterwards. When I got my Tele from a fellow forumite the action was bad I mean way bad, and to top it all there was a loud static when I plugged into the amp. Mike installed my new Artec hotrails for the bridge since i like Humbuckers definitely for the bridge. He rewired the tele changed the volume pot to 500k, adjusted the neck since it was not aligned with the body. He also changed the string gauge from 9's to 10's and finally adjusted the pickup heights and there was it! Surprisingly the Tele copy without being too honest sounded far more better than a Squire affinity Tele(well of course the wood was alder to start with) And yes Mike made the necessary tweaks that suited my taste and tone.Aside from that while waiting for your guitars his place was really comfortable and the guy was really accommodating...and to top it all he also makes custom made guitars at a very affordable price (knowing how much a custom guitar costs) I personally tried his custom tele made of pine wood and god! it can go head to head with a U.S highway one Tele..Im not kidding bro's! :-D

               Im writing this review/commendation to Mike because I personally think he deserves to be considered as one of the top luthiers in this country. He is indeed doing the lords work for us musicians because he is offering his quality (yes I mean quality!!) service at a very affordable and reasonable price....Any other Mike Sison customers out there?? post & share your stories and pics... :-D :evil:

Yeah! Finally a luthier here in the south!

Planning to pay him a visit kapag nakahanap na ako ng replacement pups. Highly recommended nga sya ni Turi dahil sa napaka intricate at keen sa details ni Mike.

mike is good people!!!!

one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet!

he's got serious chops, both with playing and working on the guitar.

he's responsible for my tele, my main squeeze  :-D i'm excited to hear his teles, as i've recently learnt that he's making them. the guy's got dog ears too, so you can be confident that anything he does will be exceptional  :-)

To the TS. thanks for the kind words. I hope I live up to the things you said. (flattering). I still think of myself as a guitar enthusiast/hobbyist who just knows how to tweak guitars after years of collecting and trying to play. Maybe a 'guitar tech' is more appropriate. But a luthier? How I wish. My partners in the shop are the real guys who are behind the guitar building. I just keep things in order.

To the rest who had nice things to say: Thanks guys!

PS. I don't usually take pictures of our jobs (tamad eh). Maybe I should to do that from now on. Last October lang ako nagsimula mag build ng guitars, Teles made of pine is my first venture. We can do most guitar repair jobs possible.

Thanks Again.

Pics don't do enough justice though..

It's really best if you try it out personally. My preference may vary from yours, but as a tele lover I encourage you to try his pine-casters. Great attention to detail and his passion for his craft is just evident in his telecasters. :-)

Mike is my new go-to guy for standard guitar works. I hope to test his Strat prototype soon. Just text me if you need a set of ears to test your goods, Mike :)
