Situated in a historic Franconian farm house in Kemmern near Bamberg I design and produce ambitous guitars made from fine woods both European and exotic. My instruments are superior pieces of handicraft focusing on a balanced tone colour, perfect playability and good ergonomics.


Being a guitar maker to me also includes analysing guitars and research their history.


Several of my instruments were awarded. They show that searching for new ways in guitar making leads to fruitful results with great benefits for the musicians.


Superior instruments requiere top-quality components, especially considering electric guitars and electric bass guitars, and a constant professional exchange of knowledge.
