In another Drop the Mic segment, Lovonia Mallory interviews Michael Tobias Design (MTD), a luthier of some of the finest handcrafted American instruments. They specialize in custom basses and guitars. Every instrument is built-to-order, built to last, and built to meet each player’s needs. The builders are Michael Tobias, Daniel Tobias (Michael’s son), and long-time friend and associate, Charlie Kniceley. Renowned for his passion, skill, and craftsmanship, MTD founder, Michael Tobias, began making guitars in the 1970s. He has traveled all over the United States pursuing his craft and has opened and sold many successful guitar making businesses while continuing to refine his craft, which has ultimately resulted in establishing a successful custom bass guitar business in Kingston, NY.
