Lipe Guitars USA was established in 2000 by Mike Lipe.
Mike started in the mid 1970's, working in a music store, learning woodworking and finishing from the resident violin maker. After eight years at the store he left to work for guitar manufacturer "MIGHTY MITE". In 1989 Mike went into business for himself and became L.A.'s original "Guitar Doctor". After six years of building and customizing guitars, Mike's business was purchased by IBANEZ in 1995. At IBANEZ Mike helped to create a custom guitar shop on the West Coast where he was a master builder of fine guitars for IBANEZ endorsers throughout the United States. After leaving IBANEZ, Mike went to YAMAHA. Here he worked on the assembly and quality control of the "PACIFICA" line of guitars for two years.
Mike worked for HOFNER (known as music group) , FENDER warranty service center for World Music in Santa Clarita C.A and is on his own as LIPE GUITARS U.S.A. Is now doing warranty service in the USA for "ZEMAITIS GUITARS".
