Mike Potvin has earned his reputation as a luthier's luthier. Not only does he single-handedly build his high-quality Potvin Guitars but he also makes templates and jigs that other builders depend on to develop and produce their guitars. Founded in 2008 in Canada's capital city of Ottawa, Potvin Guitars has created a line of innovative, modern guitars that draw inspiration from the playability of vintage instruments and the styling of classic muscle cars.
Periodically, Mike collaborates with Josh Grove of Protocaster Guitars. Their goal is to appoint these contemporary instruments with a decidedly vintage look. A perfect example of this is Project 58, which is aged authentically to replicate the look and feel of decades of subtle and natural playing wear.
