Mike Gossin’s Custom Acoustic Guitar
Mike Gossin, of top country band Gloriana
Mike may be best known for his hot electric guitar skills and smooth vocals … AND he plays a mean acoustic guitar, as well. Currently traveling the states and abroad with brother Tom Gossin and fellow Gloriana band mates Rachel Reinert and Cheyenne Kimball, Mike is staking his claim as an accomplished musician and great entertainer. The first time we heard Mike, he and Tom were wowing a home crowd in Wilmington, NC. Everyone in the room seemed to know these truly talented guys were headed for the big time. In a blink of an eye they joined forces with Rachel and Cheyenne to form Gloriana and the awards and hits started flowing. Gloriana has won numerous awards as breakthrough artists, their hit Wild At Heart went Gold and they are working on album #2.
Now, here is where Lichty Guitars comes in. Mike has commissioned Jay to build a custom guitar. He picked an incredible piece of Cocobolo wood for the back and sides and the design process is underway. This guitar will be unlike any other. All Lichty Guitars are one-of-a-kind but Mike wanted something beyond unique. He has asked the incredibly talented artist, Clark Hipolito, to paint a custom design on the top. Collaboration is underway between Mike, Clark and Jay. What an honor and we are truly excited.

Thanks go to Gloriana … Gloriana has joined the sp[OIL]ed photo campaign to help raise awareness and funds for oil spill relief efforts in Louisiana. The campaign is a photographic movement created in response to the massive oil spill off the coast of Louisiana. In conjunction with this, Gloriana took a picture with oil on their hands, symbolizing the fact that solutions to the environmental and economic impact of the oil spill are “in our hands.”
