Life for some, is a quest for things tangible, but elusive. There are those who strive to transform their fantasies into dreams and their dreams into reality. In Mike Soldano’s case, life is a quest for the ultimate guitar tone, a sound so profound, so “right,” so completely musical, that when scientists, historians, an musicologists get around to titling all things “Rock ‘n’ Roll” and placing them in the Smithsonian, the Soldano guitar sound will occupy its own wing. This man, Michael J. Soldano and his Quest for Tone, make for a great story, the story of a life-long journey that is the direct extension of his love of the classic guitar sound.
