Mike plays with Cast Iron Filter, an "alt-country" band based in Charlotte, North Carolina. He's playing a Rigel G95 here, but he's also played other Rigels, as well as a Rono 5-string. Mike's other instruments have included a custom C. E. Ward F5, a Weber Big Sky bouzouki and a 1923 Gibson F4. All are fitted with McIntyre pickups. Oh yeah, he also plays the banjo.
