Anyone here heard of TTM Guitars before?

I've just been reading about them online, as their owner liked my bands most recent video on Facebook.
It seemed quite weird as we're very new and not well known, but he messaged me about their guitars.

Appears they're made in USA, and have some fairly big guitarists on their roster.
Just wondering if anyone here has ever heard of them, not sure why they'd contact a nobody like me!

Haha, cheers

Probably a way to get sales. He might give you an "endorsement deal" but you'd still have to pay for the guitar, albeit discounted.

Yep, this. Was talking to a dude in LA a couple of weeks back (English guy) who was a Suhr endorsed artist for a while. What that amounted to was a 10% discount...

Yeah that's what it's sounding like.
Wonder if it's worth it just to say I'm an "endorsed artist" haha, but that would mean buying another guitar

Haha, no problem with new guitars!
I've just never tried a TTM, so not sure what they're like to play etc.

Not anymore but in the past I was endorsed by Digitech/ Dod and at different times Rotosound and Dean Markley strings, all gratis.

Or the local guy, who will remain nameless, who would often slide his Jackson endorsement into conversation. Transpired it amounted to a couple of free T-shirts. By that measure I'm endorsed by Neunaber (because Mathew at Tone Lounge sent me a freebie), and Bunnings.
