for me building guitars is pure passion
Passion and emotions are deep-rooted in all details of my guitars. I recombine logical lines to create exciting shapes, I use premium materials, I make high demands on quality and thus re-define the guitar to some extent.
I have been building guitars for more than 21 years. Almost every single task is performed by myself, from the raw slab of wood to the first note being played. This gives me the freedom to work with flexibility and consider special requests, in order to make the instrument distinctive and one-of-a-kind. These are guitars for individualists and lovers of exquisite instruments, but most certainly also musician’s tools for everyday use on the stages of this world.
I am convinced that my guitars express a uniqueness and that high-level craftsmanship and attention to the detail make the difference. The possibilities for a personal touch are endless – I am looking forward to it.
