Our guitars are made with varying body patterns in order to achieve the best possible sound with different kinds of wood. All our models have a Spanish style neck-to-body join.
We make guitars to order with all scale lengths between 580 and 660mm (in normal tuning) with body sizes adjusted according to the scale.
All our Concert and Artist´s instruments have our special bridge, which decisively improves the intonation. The fingerboard is slightly arched to enable clean and comfortable playing, especially in barré chords. All our guitars, in every price category, have a 20th fret (c”’).
For players with smaller hands, we particularly recommend our models with shorter scale lengths.
These smaller guitars have a full sound with good projection and are available in all our price categories.
The colours of our guitars and lutes range from natural to dark brown.
Apart from the sound of the guitar, our top priority is excellent playability. Our guitar necks are shaped to accommodate the player’s hand and our fingerboards are slightly arched for clean and comfortable barré chords.
All our guitars, regardless of price, have a 20th fret (c³).
We also make left-handed instruments to order at no extra cost.
Please request our price list
All our Concert, Artist and Top models are available with either Spruce or Cedar soundboards. All instruments are hand-finished with French polish.
Naturally, we use only top quality tuning machines and strings.
We offer a range of brand-name hard cases for all our instruments!
In addition to round soundholes, we also build guitars with oval soundholes. This makes for interesting changes in tone.
Two different, striking headstock designs are the hallmark of Gropp guitars.
We have had good results from using European woods such as Flamed Maple, Oak, Bird’s Eye Maple, Quarter-Cut Maple, and Cherry. Guitars made from these woods are available in all price-categories from “Concert models”.
Our high-end “SPEZIAL” guitars represent another important stage in our ongoing search for the perfect sound:
- A bright, clear tone which combines good separation and warmth, which can produce a wide range of different tone colours, and which has excellent projection
- Fast response and long sustain
- Generous dynamic capacity for the guitarist from pp to ff
- Even tone quality all over the fretboard /li>
Our guitars are available in scale lengths from 580mm to 660 mm,
with the body size varying in proportion to the scale length.
