How To Buy A Mule
Step One: Make a deposit. We can talk options later, you don't have to decide now.
Step Two: About a month or so before we begin your guitar you'll get an e-mail to confirm options.
Step Three: You start getting progress pictures. This guitar is for you and we want you to see it come together.
Step Four: When you get the snazzy completed pictures you pay the remainder, we ship it to you and you are happy.
A quick note from Matt on the options: My personal opinion is this: If you play with a pick primarily a steel single cone will be my recommendation. If you play with a slide/fingers/pick I would recommend a steel tricone, which is what 7/10 of my customers get. If you have an amp, the minihumbucker option is a really fun tonal option.

My name is Matt Eich and I build these steel bodied resonators. In normal acoustic guitars the differences between woods and pickups are noticeable but subtle. Many times those differences are too subtle to create change in how a player approaches the guitar and that can lead to a revolving door of buying and selling instruments that are too similar.
Inspiring tone is something that produces a sound that wakes up your ear and your creativity. That's the value in having one of these instruments. You will hear new things, make different musical choices, write new songs. After playing a Mule you hear other guitars with fresh ears, make different musical choices, write new songs. Round and round it goes. It's inspiring tone.
I know buying an instrument this way can be unusual but trust me, it's something special. Developing a connection with the person who made your instrument and the others who also play them is an inspiring thing in itself. It makes a guitar bigger than an object, it makes it an experience.
This is the new sound of steel.
