In the twilight of the 60s, Sergei de Jonge embarked on a journey to master the art of guitar crafting under the guidance of Jean Claude Larrivée, a man destined to be revered as the godfather of Canadian guitar builders. By 1972, de Jonge had forged his own path, establishing a renowned workshop and focusing predominantly on crafting classical guitars. The art didn’t stop with him; he passed down his legacy and expertise to his daughter Joshia, who now nurtures her own world of creations.

Ergonomically designed, the neck shape and the elevated fingerboard, harmonizing with the double-top construction, provide players with unparalleled comfort. Whether you’re strumming with your right or picking with your left, this guitar ensures that each motion is effortless. The result is a powerful, modern-day guitar that echoes with a warm and intricate tone.
