Morgan’s Sunset is an art guitar I was commissioned to paint for a beautiful man who is fighting cancer, a very ugly disease that has touched us all. His wife Rita wanted to surprise this once wild, crazy surfer with a big wave, or a sunset for his love of the ocean. Rita told me they get to the ocean as much as they possibly can, and enjoy the sunset together.
Close To My Heart
I put a whole lotta love into this guitar because Morgan’s fight is something I know all too well. I was my fathers caregiver when he was 83 and going through the same battle as Morgan. Changed me forever… both beautiful and sad…watching from the front row the circle of life. Elmer was both the best Dad ever, and my best friend. An amazing teacher, artist, philosopher…a true Renaissance man.
Water, Waves, Sand And The Sun
I was slightly daunted at first as this was my first attempt with water and the sun. Using my guitar stains, my black ink pen, and a lot of acrylic white I eventually saw Morgan’s Sunset coming to life.
Morgan And His Sunset Guitar
As you can see I think Rita and I brought a little joy and a big smile to the man with the guitar in his hand. God bless with light and love…MT
This old lefty Samick Strat, I recently re-finished for Gene Evaro Jr. and turned it into a Joshua Tree Samick Strat. He thought he was going to get a big paisley design. Instead I decided to surprise him with a Joshua tree scene since he hails from the magic little town of Joshua Tree, in the high desert of Southern California.
This was an exciting project for both of us because this guitar would be Gene’s very first guitar that would have the hardware, knobs, input etc. in the right place. Gene has always played left handed and upside down so this will be a whole new world for him. He is truly a stellar musician and an amazing person! I am honored to call him my friend and my family. I can’t wait to watch him burn down the house with his band genejrandthefamily , his new guitar in hand. Blessings MT
This is a guitar that sat for years and just never sang how I felt that It could. I put this guitar in the hands of MT and the beauty that this guitar has!! Earthquake angel of sound is coming of this pure wood covered in the universe that we all share! Just the look alone inspires my heart to play and once I strum a chords it sings right to me!
MT is one of those artists that you can say just get creative and he will put his love and care into everything he does!!! This Space Dreamer guitar speaks to me in new ways and he has brought it back to life! I am so honored and blessed to have this art and love upon the instrument that I express my true heart songs with!! ~Spencer
Here is my latest hi-speed time-lapse video of the Space Dreamer guitar commissioned by Spencer Kaiser. This artwork took about 5 days, but the entire process of customizing and refinishing a guitar takes a few weeks- depending on the project.
OMG. There are no words to express my gratitude for my Zebra Wood. She just arrived, and I am over the moon thrilled, with what you created for me…Thank you again from the bottom of my heart….I am honored to have such a beautiful piece of your work to treasure for always. ❤️❤️❤️ Cynthia
Several hours of work in under three minutes, as another MT Robison Art Guitar is created! This is a faux zebra wood finish on an Ibanez acoustic guitar. It was created with a tape and guitar stain technique applied with paintbush. See more photos and the full story of this zebra wood art guitar here.

If you’re money poor and guitar rich, let’s talk!
This guitar was commissioned by a Joshua Tree musician, who traded 3 guitars he wasn’t playing in exchange for me turning his favorite guitar, a Gibson Epiphone into a MT Robison Art Guitar, and Space Dreamer was born. This was good deal for the both of us.
Spencer wanted the guitar to reflect his original music which is very ethereal. He asked for an outer space theme with the planet Saturn on the front. He told me the rest was up to me as the artist. This guitar was a completely new style of art for me, but I just let it flow and had a blast!
I’m learning so many new things about my process every project. Thank you Spence for making me stretch with your beautiful new Space Dreamer!
