Meet the maker - Leila Sidi of Tunatone Instruments

If you've followed the Home of Tone for any length of time, I'm sure you'll have noticed my admiration & appreciation of luthiers who forge their own path through guitar design and their approach to building. I love seeing a luthier display influences from outside of the guitar world, and I particularly love to see a designer & builder's own personality apparent in their final works. After all, so many of those early guitar designs that have been coveted so much since their inception started this way, with perhaps Leo Fender being one of the greatest examples of this. His iconic designs originated from the mind of a non-musician, a designer and inventor who felt like he could contribute to the music world, and that he certainly did. So with that being said, we still need those people who think ahead, the people who wish to think outside of the traditional box whilst being respectful of it to help keep the guitar world exciting and innovative. Someone who has appeared to me to encapsulate that from following her work for a while now, has been Leila Sidi of Tunatone Instruments. So it seemed fitting for me to get back to my 'meet the maker' blog series by reaching out to Leila and speaking about her work!

#MGS3build - My personal Millimetric MGS3 build

After a super excited, but patient wait. It's become my turn for my personal build by Millimetric Instruments. Cast your minds back to around this time last year, I sold a guitar I'd owned for a number of years after finally seeing the astonishing work by Florian in person, and felt super content in knowing once it's my turn it most certainly will be worth the wait. Well, I received the very first couple of photos of the build which will be commencing soon, after Florian went wood shopping for my MGS3 build.
