Product Description

Karel Dedain was born in 1976 and has been building guitars since 1998. He lives and works in Ghent, Belgium.
Initially he was a passionate flamenco guitar player and it was this that triggered his interest in guitar making. He finished his first guitar in 1999 and never stopped.
Karel Dedain was trained at the CMB (Centrum voor Muziekinstrumentenbouw) with Walter Verreydt and became a professional luthier in 2006, specialized in classical and flamenco guitars. Since then he met a lot of other great makers and has seen and repaired a lot of great guitars of famous luthiers.
Since 2006 Karel also teaches guitar making at the Centre for Musical Instrument Building in Puurs, Belgium, together with Walter Verreydt.
He makes about five to six guitars a year, all by hand. One of his specialities is French polishing.
His filosophy in guitar construction is not to invent something ‘new’, but seek out what good examples there are from historical luthiers as Torres, Garcia, Arias, Hernandez and to start there. Trying to understand what these great makers did is a big challenge and a very good starting point for searching the own style and sound.
This guitar is a copy (except for the rosette and cypress) of a 1917 guitar by Enrique Garcia. It has eight fan bars, typical for Garcia. Karel respected everything of the original: doming of the soundboard and back and the dimensions. Everyone who played it was impressed by the trebbles and balance. The machine heads are by Gotoh.

Karel Dedain è nato nel 1976 ed ha costruito la sua prima chitarra nel 1998. Vive e lavora a Ghent, in Belgio.
Inizialmente era un chitarrista appassionato di chitarra flamenca e fu questo che ha scatenato il suo interesse per la liuteria. Ha terminato la sua prima chitarra nel 1999 e non ha mai smesso.
Karel Dedain ha studiato liuteria presso la CMB (Centrum voor Muziekinstrumentenbouw) con Walter Verreydt ed è diventato un liutaio professionista nel 2006, specializzandosi in chitarra classica e flamenco. Da allora ha incontrato moltissimi altri grandi liutai e ha visto e riparato molte chitarre di grandi liutai.
Dal 2006 insegna liuteria presso il centro di Liuteria a Puurs, in Belgio, insieme a Walter Verreydt.
Egli fa circa cinque o sei chitarre all’anno, tutte a mano.
La sua filosofia nella costruzione di chitarre non è di inventare qualcosa di ‘nuovo’, ma imparare dai grandi liutai come Torres, Garcia, Arias, Hernandez e incominciare da lì. Cercando di capire cosa questi grandi liutai hanno fatto è una grande sfida e un ottimo punto di partenza per la ricerca di un suono/stile personale.
Questa chitarra è una copia (ad eccezione della rosetta e il cipresso) di una chitarra di Enrique Garcia del 1917. Ha otto raggiere, tipico per Garcia. Karel ha rispettato tutte le misure dell’originale: la tavola armonica curvata come anche il fondo curvato e anche le dimensioni. Una chitarra eccellente e equilibrata.
