Mike Fischer

A self-described "dork for guitars," Mike grew up in Minnesota and started playing guitar when he was 10 – his father was a guitar player. He's always loved building things with his hands, and he started working in stained glass at 14, which lead him to study art in college. After graduating cum laude from the University of Wisconsin River Falls with bachelor’s degree in art (and a minor in physics), Mike joined VanAmps, where he aided in nearly every aspect of production. Working with amp and pedal guru Tim Van Tassel inspired Mike to return to school for luthiery at Southeast Tech in Minnesota, where he earned certificates in guitar repair and building, and guitar development and production.

Mike joined the Weber team in 2013, and he’s passionate about doing detailed intricate work, and is particularly skilled at crafting meticulous miter joints. When not handcrafting Weber instruments, Mike can be found building his own guitars – he's built eight guitars for his own personal collection, including a Larson-Brothers braced OM steel-string acoustic with a 15-foot-radius flat top and a nitrocellulose finish – winding his own pickups, and hanging out with the love of his life, his fiancé, Andrea.
