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]
