|Ward||2007 to present||Handmade guitars by Mike Ward, Lewisville, Texas. USA.
“I started making guitars around the end of 2007. With the intent of just making them for my children. After building a few guitars I received quite a bit of interest. I build them now in my garage with plans to rent a shop and start full time production later this year as sales support.

I put a label under the pickups and a serial # listing the type, model, year then number. Eg. OL,44,09,00267.” [Source: Mike Ward, email 29/3/2009]
