Classical Guitar & Lute Making

100 years of tradition

Master Workshop

We are dedicated to the artisanal construction of high-quality concert guitars and historical plucked instruments, as well as their restoration.

Tradition in the craftsmanship of our instruments and in the constructional/sound style of our models, e.g. Richard Jacob Weissgerber, as well as innovation through the innovative interior construction of our top guitars and playability at the highest level are in harmony and characterise the orientation of our master workshop. We are constantly on the way to perfecting the sound characteristics.

Travelling with a guitar

Since December 2019, guitarists, except players of Rio guitars, no longer have to pay attention to anything when travelling with their instruments.
The Dalbergia species, which continue to be protected, are no longer subject to a certificate of presentation when assembled.

“La Onda” Models

After individual updates in construction, they are the best in our current range. Particularly noteworthy are the tightness, sweetness, power and warmth of the sound with a wonderful clarity of tone, even with shorter scales, such as 630 mm.
