Lisa Weinzierl has been enriching the Siccas Guitars team from the beginning of 2017 until the end of 2018. After completing her lutherie apprenticeship at the renowned Instrument-Building-School in Mittenwald/Germany where she completed as her year’s best student, Lisa initially moved to France. There she gained experience in the workshop of Christopher Schuetz in Villes-sur-Auzon and learned the French language. Later Lisa gained experience in the restoration of string instruments with Peter Ziegler in Unterhaching/Germany and in the workshop of Gert Esmyol in Munich where she deepened her knowledge and skills.
Of course, she let the accumulated experience flow into this wonderful guitar. Her preference for the elegance of traditional guitars, such as the instruments of Hermann Hauser I & II, can be clearly recognized in this guitar. The German V-joint, the rosette specially made for this guitar and the French shellac polish express the special emphasis that Lisa puts on craftsmanship at the highest level. The playability and feel are fantastic, and the slightly raised fretboard makes playing in higher registers very comfortable.
This gorgeous and refined instrument sums up everything we appreciate in a classical guitar. It is built with extreme precision, great aesthetical taste, and most of all it sounds marvellous. Sweet tone, spontaneity, excellent balance and boundless sustain are the first striking features. After having played for a moment, the second emotion-flow arrives as one discovers the rich tone colours, wild dynamic possibilities and joyfully singing first string. Certainly, an elegant and genuinely accomplished guitar.
