Dietmar Heubner builds traditional guitars with modern sound aesthetics. His instruments impress with their sustain and exceptional sound volume. Due to their variety of timbres and the wide dynamic spectrum, they offer many possibilities for guitarists to express themselves through a unique sound. Dietmar started his career in the ’80s in Stuttgart as a cabinet maker but soon followed his real passion, building classical guitars. Early on, he followed the Spanish guitar building tradition.
To craft this extraordinary instrument, Dietmar Heubner decided to refrain from using machines and to get as close as possible to the wood. Using hand planes and scraper blades, he shaped the top as well as the back and sides. This masterly feat of craftsmanship allowed him to control the thickness of the wood, to adjust spontaneously to its characteristics, and to take advantage of the possibilities and opportunities inherent in any craft. This approach is perfectly in line with Dietmar’s philosophy, emphasizing that traditional construction still offers unlimited possibilities for development in terms of sound aesthetics, projection, and everything else that makes the guitar such an exceptional instrument.
This beautiful guitar made in 2015 is a top-notch concert instrument. It is a true powerhouse with an amazing sonority, extremely pleasant playability, and stunning dynamic expressiveness. Dietmar Heubner recently refinished the varnish on this guitar himself, so it is in almost spotless condition. The tuners are made in Germany by Scheller and have the particularity of being made of engraved nickel silver.
