    Heard from a reputable source that he lost his battle with cancer today. I’ve ordered several custom guitars from him over the years and it was always a great experience.

    Best wishes to his family. RIP, Matt.

    Condolences to his family and everyone at Matt's Music. He was a top tier dude who ran a top tier shop.

    Aw man, that's a shame. I always preferred Matt's over just about anyone.

    Horrible news! :( So sad to hear. I ordered my kickass custom Jackson Kelly 7-string through him and he was so incredibly helpful and such a gentleman. RIP Matt!

    Damn.
    Didn't know the guy but that's the worst thing I've read all day; always sucks to see something like that.
    Nothing to do but be happy for the lives he touched along the way, I suppose. Sounds like a great dude.

    Condolences to those that were close to him. Never utilized Matt's Music before but will absolutely do so asap to help support his family. Seems like the man had one hell of a great reputation.

    Jay posted something on the shop Facebook. They are going to keep it open in his memory so you may have more Jacksons in your future.
