The Voigts are one of the oldest musical instrument maker dynasties that exist in the world. Adam I. Voigt, is considered the founding father and was admitted in 1699 to the former violin makers guild in Neukirchen. For more than 300 years not only stringed and fretted instruments, but also bows, strings, wood and brass instruments were manufactured in the family. While the construction of bowed instruments dominated until about 1800, this changed from 1850 with the “in vouge instruments” guitar and zither. The son Marc-Julian Voigt represents in consecutive order the 10th Generation in the family dynasty as instrument maker. This classical guitar was built in 1999 and has a spruce top. Back and sides are made of Cypress. The guitar has some signs of usage and repaired cracks on the back.
