Michael bought his first guitar, a Fender California Series Stratocaster in Candy Apple Red, in 1998. He likes rock of all types, from classic to punk to metal. Michael co-founded Equipboard to satisfy his curiosity around what gear his guitar heroes use.
He has taken music lessons in piano, guitar, and trumpet over the years.
His current favorite guitar is a Gibson Golden Axe Explorer. His favorite bands and artists include Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Chris Stapleton, and SRV (He's an Austinite, after all).
