Matthias “Matteo” Hartig is a German luthier from Glattbach, Bavaria. Just like the famous Robert Bouchet, it was only in his forties that he discovered his true vocation in guitar making. His inspiration is the sound of the instruments of the old masters. Especially Torres, Enrique Garcia, Antonio Emilio Pascual and Richard Jacob “Weißgerber”. Matteo is dedicated to traditional building methods, using almost exclusively hide glue for his construction and shellac for the finish.
This brand new guitar numbered 63 is heavily inspired by the legendary German master luthier Richard Jacob “Weißgerber”. The spruce top is fluted, a technique Weissgerber used on some of his best instruments, giving this guitar a unique look and sound. Overall, it has a distinctively clear and precise, but most importantly, overtone-rich sound character that makes it a wonderfully singing and inspiring guitar.
