Default A Builder/Luthier Named Tom Meyers?

Anybody ever hear of a luthier from Minnesota named Tom Meyers? If so, could you give me your opinion of his instruments? Thanks for your help.

No personal experience, but maybe some leads among these. I think are all from the late 1980's:

Authored an article in this magazine:

You're welcome, hope it helps. Perhaps tells you something if you're checking out an existing instrument. As I did not find any more modern references, it suggests that he may no longer be building guitars, or no longer on our side of the dirt. Post if you find out otherwise.

Thanks, Kevin. According to one of the articles you sent me, Mr. Meyers was a junior high biology teacher who also made very nice guitars. I can't find any references to more recent work either.
