Ordering a custom made guitar is a very special and personal experience. I am open to designing new guitar types especially for you. Below you may find some information about the instrument types I make. Endless options are available for customization.

If you do not want to wait for a custom-made instrument – check the Available Guitars

Please look through the featured instruments to get acquainted with my past work, or contact me to discuss your idea.

Guitar models


These instruments are completely hand-crafted and have the same great playability and sound that my guitars are known for. The woods chosen for these guitars may contain visual imperfections but are still tonally and functionally excellent. In order to keep the low making cost, it’s not possible to customize this instrument and its price is 2.500 EUR net for classical guitars and 3.000 EUR net for acoustic guitars.

The Queen of Guitars

The Queen of Guitars is made from the highest Master-grade woods giving it unique, beautiful sound. The instrument base price starts at 4.000 EUR net for classical guitars and 5.000 EUR net for acoustic guitars.

The Queen of Guitars – Diamond

The Diamond guitars are my best-sounding and most expensive instruments having the best sound and one of a kind (mostly ancient) woods. Inlayed with natural diamonds (black/white/colorful), natural amber, natural gemstones, solid silver/gold, and authentic mammoth bone.


When you order a guitar I ask for a 50% deposit. This secures your place on the waiting list and also locks in the current price. The deposit covers the initial expenses such as materials and design work for your guitar and is non-refundable.


Guitar without standard soundhole

Guitar without standard soundhole, instead 2 x diagonal soundhole with African Ebony ‘wing’ bracing. It allows for significant enlargement of the resonant area of the guitar top.

You may mix wood types e.g. Alpine Spruce from Tirol (top) / Western Red Cedar (bottom) would give a sound with both Spruce and Cedar advantages.

guitar armrest

All my instruments are equipped as standard with wide (over 20 mm [13/16″]), smooth ebony armrest integrated with the guitar body.

It allows the soundboard to vibrate freely by reducing the damping effect of the forearm as it contacts the side and soundboard when playing

It can be more comfortable due to the rounded shape of the bevel, there is no edge that could cut into the forearm while playing. The pressure is thus better distributed. This can avoid irritation of the nerve tracts, which might affect the forearm and in extreme cases even leads to deaf fingers. The Bevel also prevents strain in the arm and neck, which can permanently damage the muscles when using a guitar without armrest.

Elevated fingerboard

  • It provides easier access beyond the 12th fret
  • The distance from the strings to the soundboard is increased providing an advantage for the right-hand
  • Increased mass provides superior sustain
  • The top of the guitar is NOT sloped down (as many luthiers do to achieve the ‘elevated fingerboard’)

backpack guitar
folding neck acoustic travel guitar

All of my guitars can be made as ‘MINI’ size with shorter scale length, smaller body, and neck.

It is also possible to have it with folding-neck.

Special chemical coating inside

Applied to protect the guitar’s top from sudden moisture changes (without affecting the sound)


I create highly-resonant, antistatic varnish (own recipe), hand-polished. It may be matt or high-gloss. It’s water-based and does not need a sealer. Environmentally friendly, nonflammable, crystal-clear and non-yellowing (with UV filters).


I can make professional assembly of audio-system and/or help you decide which would be best for your guitar.
