It was on a classical guitar-web site that I saw for the first time the work of Luthier. It’s beauty was first surprised me. I was able to understand the high degree of guitar at a glance although the site photo. If we do not try to play and we do not understand its value

Rafal Turkowiak’s guitars have not yet received world renown as most who know of him reside in areas that are a bit off the beaten track in the guitar world. Once the world learns more of him, I am sure many will be beating a path to his Luthiery no matter where in the world

I have been the lucky owner of this wonderful classical guitar for a month now. The wood is of excellent quality and only the best cuts are used. I chose the guitar with sides and back in Kauri wood (a wood 45,000 years old, certified) and top in Fir from Tyrol. The inlays are made

An instrument’s inherent function is to offer a musician the opportunity to comfortably produce a beautiful sound. Rafal Turkowiak has intermingled the fullness of sound with luxurious craftsmanship. This is truly a classical guitar for a lifetime. – Jonathan Marshall

Rafal Turkowiak’s guitars are fantastic instruments. The quality, attention to every detail, and most of all, the sound of the instrument make the most important features of his masterly work. I strongly believe that the future guitars will be as perfect as the present ones and the consultation with famous artists will help him produce

I have been playing my new Turkowiak Luthier’s jazz guitar no. 47 for two weeks now and my enthusiasm for this highly impressive instrument has continued to grow during this period.This nylon-string guitar has an incredible bell-like sustain, while every note retains its own clearly distinguishable voice in chords or arpeggios. The unconventionally shaped neck

Hi, I am a jazz guitarist. I have been looking for an instrument which would sound perfect both on stage and in the studio. An instrument with a warm sound and high dynamics. Rafal Turkowiak’s guitar has turned out to be far better than my expectations. Each sound gives you inspiration and the music evolves

I have been playing a guitar for over 30 years. The friend of mine has one of Rafal’s guitar and invited me for trials. I have to admit I have never heard such a sweet and strong sound and huge instrument cohesion. There are not too many differences between the Turkowiak guitars model what can indicate greatness

Rafal Turkowiak made a custom-built guitar for me. Its sound is phenomenal. Both the high pitched notes and the low ones give the guitar an exceptional timre

I am an onwer of a flamenco guitar made by Rafal Turkowiak in 2009. The instrument has beautiful sound and it’s very well made with the use of top class materials. After hitting the treble strings, the sound is clear and it goes on and on. The bass is very strong and deep. Moreover, thanks

Every ‘new generation’ of guitars made by Rafal Turkowiak is very interesting. The latest cedar instruments feature warm and meledious sound of the treble. Rafal Turkowiak pays much attention to visual sphere, that’s why the guitars are so carefully made.

Giving a review of Rafal Turkowiak’s instrument is a unique opportunity because it gives you a chace to have a contact with a real luthier’s masterpiece. I have recently become a lucky owner of his classical guitar.First thing that comes to my mind when having to give an opinion on that instrument is an old

Welcome, In February my parents bought me a birthday present – ‘the Queen of Guitars’ from your workshop. This gift was wonderful – the guitar is absolutely beautiful with extraordinary sound. After a few months of playing the instrument I think it sounds better and better, has exceptionally deep bass and beautiful treble. My demanding tutor in

Instrument – a dead object without a soul. A thing! Is it only? Maybe an artifact? It’s also a thing, an object. It’s a dormant and mysterious thing. Patent. Ready to act and hoping to be moved. Then it gives the sound. It takes years for the sound to express human feelings and emotions. Love,

Dear Rafal. I am very proud to be albe to play your guitar. However, for the first 6 months I couldn’t get on with it very well but now it rewards me all the time. The guitar is very well made and it is solid with lots of technical innovations which make it easier to

In 2010 I bought a classical guitar – ‘the Queen of Guitars’ with III type ‘WAVE’ resonator (the top shelf model). Rafal Turkowiak delivered the guitar to me on his own. He is a great man with huge experience.He told me a lot about the guitar and instructed me how to play it properly. The

I have had the classical guitar for over a month now and I, an absolute amateur, may say plainly: I am dreaming of having enough skills to be able to fully use the virtues  of the instrument.  In comparison to all other guitars that I have played, it’s absolutely new quality in terms of beautiful

Strong attack, quick response, clear and bright sound, clear and strong high frequency sound. It sounds like silver when getting into Tremolo Flamenco, sharp accent at Picado. Rasgueado – strong and selective. Do you need anything more than that? Perfectly made instrument impresses me every time I reach for the hard case.  Undoubtedly, the guitar

The guitar made by Rafal Turkowiak is sheer joy of the sounds both to a musician who plays the instrument and a listener who receives the music. It’s a great feeling for those who in their dreams want an instrument to be more than just a tool to produce a beautiful sound, to be a

I had a few guitars before my first meeting with the one carved by Mr Turkowiak. It was an amazing meeting for me. the depth sustain and clarity of the sound seduced me right away and I felt the instrument had no equals. You play it like the best grand piano. Guitar Stradivario – I
