    Quotes and Messages from Mas Hino's Musician friends and Clienteles!

    Mitch Stein - Guitarist

    The Strat guitar that Mas Hino made for me is amazing!! It was built perfectly to the specs I gave him and the craftsmanship and quality are outstanding!! It is incredibly even up and down the neck and you can hear the tone without even plugging it in!! The playability and tone are ridiculous!!! I won't let anybody work on my guitars except Mas!



    Jerry Barnes - Bassist

    Mas is a Luthier genius!!!!
