Description:   Lee’s Music was simply a retail store with a specialist repair arm until Lee’s son, Mike Miltimore, came up with an innovative technique for building stronger, better guitars in a fraction of the time. The company has big plans for its patent-pending design, and is tooling up a manufacturing plant to scale up production. Danny Bradbury caught up with Mr. Miltimore to get the details on Riversong Guitars, a new family venture.
