关于

MILK®GUITARS, 米克®吉他,诞生于21世纪初的新加坡,由几位热爱乐器制作的朋友们一起创造,专注于吉他及相关配件的研发及制作,因为设计方面的创意及年轻化的定位,一开始就得到年轻乐者的喜欢,所制作的吉他得到民谣,Blues等演奏者的认可。

很多米克®吉他(MILK®GUITARS)的朋友都问过一个问题,为什么叫米克(MILK),其实没有什么神秘的原因,在几经熬夜设计某款吉他直至天亮的时候,我们打算一起吃早餐完就各自回家休息,这个时候有人提出,是时候考虑一下吉他命名的问题,这时候我们的目光同时落到桌上摆着得那瓶牛奶上了。

“孔”在中华文化里为精神食粮, “乳”为物质食粮,且都有深刻的含义,取名米克(MILK)也更好的告诉大家,我们来自东方。

2015年开始,米克®吉他(MILK®GUITARS),品牌开始接受高端全单定制业务,得到了众多吉他发烧友的响应。当然,我们会将更好的设计和态度使用在品牌未来的日子里。

In the beginning there was a name ‘Milk’.

Had I known how often I would be asked about its meaning, would I have chosen another name? No, even after all these years and so many questions, I remain fresh with the name Milk which has now become entrenched in the awareness of guitar making processing.

Everything start by somewhere. In 1998, Kenneth Zhang LG, who had come to the Singapore from China to study music. In the beginning, he and his several musician colleagues learned guitar making technology from Western-trained guitar makers from United States, but before long, they saw that a different approach was needed.

Mr. Zhang hired a group of established master guitar makers, and with their help, he established an acoustic guitar workshop devoted to the handcrafting of instruments.

There are already many excellent guitar brands in the world. Our guitar workshop builds guitar instruments and has continued the tradition of high quality at a low cost.

Our instrument workshops operate in precisely the same manner as late 19th century European workshops. Chisels, knives, gouges, and scrapers, in the hands of outstandingly gifted craftspeople, are the primary tools used to create these modern instruments, using methods centuries old.

But we have omitted to name it. Untill one day, breakfast, we were discussing for a name for my steel string guitars, someone asked, what do you want it to be? My sight stopped on the cup of milk in front of me…

Just like a daily friend, kindly and warm. We were smiling without any word.

about-milk-Confucious

In the ancient oriental culture, ‘Confucious’ (孔子) and ‘Milk’ (乳) marked the enlightenment of mankind. Traditions mean a lot to us if they manifest in everyday working reality. New technology offers incentives and challenges for the creation of something as complex as an acoustic guitar which demands the highest levels of precision.

On behalf of all Milk colleagues.
