Okanagan Man Could Be the Next Guitar Hero!

Okanagan man, Mike Miltimore of Lee Music has developed an innovative technique in guitar making using wood that has been harvested locally in BC.

Music is Mike’s passion. He lives and breathes music — on and off the stage and behind the scenes.

He has a patent pending on a new guitar design that reduces building time from 100 to 24 hours and has revolutionized a 150 year old guitar-making technique. “We have everything we need to manufacture our guitars right here using local products and providing employment for more people,” says Miltimore.

He has a chance of winning a $100,000 grand prize innovation award to continue pursuing his vision of revolutionizing the guitar and music industry. He will be relying on the public to vote for his project for a chance to be the winner of the 2012 BDC Young Entrepreneur Award.

Public voting is now on until June 19th.

Lee Music is a full service music store established 30 years ago with branches in Kelowna and Kamloops. Most recently the company started manufacturing custom guitars 3 years ago and has a patent pending on a new guitar line that will revolutionize the guitar industry.
