Lisa Weinzierl is one of the most talented luthiers of the new generation. After her training as a guitar maker at the renowned instrument-making school in Mittenwald, she gained experience with many established guitar makers such as Gernot Wagner, Andreas Kirschner, Gert Esmyol, Peter Ziegler, Christopher Schuetz, and Leo Sprenger. With her master craftsman diploma in plucked instrument making, Lisa received a gold medal and the master craftsman award of the Bavarian state government. Lisa is currently working for the London instrument and bow makers W.E. Hill and Sons under the direction of Stefan-Peter Greiner and Robert Brewer Young. In this creative and vibrant workshop, she builds her guitars.
Some guitars are truly unique, and this is one of them. The craftsmanship that Lisa Weinzierl displays is simply impressive. Considering how much work she puts into each of her instruments makes it easy to understand why her annual production run is limited to just a few guitars. French polished at the highest level, Lisa’s guitars show an elaborate traditional bracing, a raised fingerboard, a beautifully rounded neck with a german “V” joint, and premium quality German-made Scheller tuners. Hand-made and almost without the use of machines, her guitars are absolute gems.
This brand-new instrument has a classic wood combination with a first-class spruce soundboard and Indian rosewood for the back and sides, making for a wide, complex, and colorful sound. The gorgeously crafted rosette shows some vibrant matching colors, well complemented by the most splendid purflings and a super comfortable neck. When playing on the instrument, one can immediately feel its responsiveness and the fine attack, a very lyrical sustain, and deep bass response. Looking further into the design, the guitar is built with double sides that make the structural integrity firmer. Using this technique allows the luthier to build lighter, thus creating a complex tone with a lot of core. This guitar suits the musician that wants perfection delivered with a lush, sweet, and singing tone.
