In the gentle hands of time, specifically in 1966, a work of unmatched beauty and precision came to life under the skilled fingers of Martin Jacob, the son of the legendary Richard Jacob “Weissgerber”. Over the years, at the heart of the renowned “Weissgerber” workshop, Martin was not only his father’s pupil but also his collaborative partner. Here, he honed his craft, developed a deep understanding of the subtle acoustic properties of different woods, and mastered the art of guitar-making.
Every note played on this guitar speaks of its exquisite craftsmanship. It fills the room with an exceptionally clear sound, crystalline highs, and an impressive clarity and separation of individual voices. Despite its age, it presents itself in remarkably good condition.
This guitar is not just an instrument; it is an echo of the past resonating in each of its timbres. It stands not only as a testament to Martin Jacob’s masterful skills but also as a window into an era where craftsmanship and tradition were tightly intertwined. It is a subtle yet powerful guitar that offers both a rich spectrum of sound colors and a captivating historical context.
