"Tom Lippincott is an original voice on the guitar. He has created his own vocabulary and expresses that on a customized instrument with additional strings. The result is compelling and unique and unlike any other player I've heard. I look forward to hearing where his musical journey will lead, and I'm very happy to play with him whenever I can." - John Stowell
