• Tim Reede

Tim Reede enrolled in the Guitar Repair and Building program at MSC Southeast in 2004. He then embarked upon a career making high-end custom instruments, ranging from historic designs to guitars with modern features. He has pushed instrument design to a new level by adding elements that improve comfort and increase sound quality, such as beveled arm rests, fan frets, demi-cutaways, and side sound ports. His work has been featured in guitar shows, museums, and books. He began teaching at MSC Southeast in 2015.
