Description

Michele Della Giustina, a master luthier born in Vittorio Veneto in 1962, has carved a distinguished niche in the world of classical guitar making since graduating from the Udine Conservatory in 1990. His journey into luthiery began under the tutelage of Maestro Carlo Raspagni, from whom he learned the foundational skills and philosophies that would guide his career. Della Giustina’s craft took a significant turn upon meeting Kazuo Sato, a Japanese luthier whose influence spurred a successful collaboration with the Niibori Guitar Music Academy in Japan, leading to a notable conference on violin making at their Tokyo headquarters in 2003. The year 2004 marked a pivotal point in Della Giustina’s career as he hosted Hiroyuki Arai, a young luthier student from Japan, for two months. This mentorship not only enriched Arai’s craftsmanship but also strengthened Della Giustina’s international connections. His participation in the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) Conventions in Montreal (2004) and Columbus – Atlanta (2006) opened the doors to the American market, further amplified by an invitation to New York by NBC journalist Ramon Zayas, who introduced him to the East Coast’s guitar scene.

In 2007, Della Giustina was a guest of Maestro Danny Yeh at the Shanghai Conservatory, where he held a conference on violin making during the Quindao guitar festival, showcasing his instruments to a new audience. More recently, in 2023, he was honored at the National Music Institute in Krakow, Poland, for an event dedicated to classical guitar, highlighting his enduring influence in the guitar-making world. Della Giustina’s guitars, which now number over 420, are esteemed by musicians across Japan, the United States, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Colombia, Brazil, Europe, and Italy. His instruments are a testament to his deep study of the great masters of the past and a profound understanding of the acoustic properties of woods. Combining traditional methods with a keen eye on the needs of contemporary concerts, Della Giustina has also focused on developing an “Italian” conception tool using spruce and maple to produce a sound that resonates with the great guitar-making tradition of Italy. Simultaneously, he is innovating with a “concept” guitar featuring a Sinker Cedar top and Bog Oak back and sides, aiming to create a sound that bridges the archaic and the modern. Beyond his craftsmanship, Della Giustina has dedicated himself to teaching the art of guitar making, guiding around twenty students in building their guitars in his workshop. He resides and works in a mountain town in the province of Belluno, surrounded by the beauty of nature, his wife Viviana, their son Vassili, and a menagerie of domestic and wild animals, contributing to the rich tapestry of the Italian luthiery tradition.

The Michele Della Giustina guitar, constructed in 2024 with the serial number 420, showcases the luthier’s dedication to innovative craftsmanship and acoustic excellence. This instrument features a unique double top design without a core, combining cedar and spruce to create a lightweight yet mechanically resilient structure. The choice of wild Indian rosewood for the back and sides, paired with a khaya mahogany neck, further contributes to its outstanding sound quality and aesthetic appeal. The use of Pagos black aluminium tuners and Knobloch Erithacus CX edc 34.0 strings complements the guitar’s superior build, ensuring precise tuning and a vibrant tonal palette. Housed in an Eastman case, this guitar is built in the style famously used by Uros Baric in many of his acclaimed videos, designed to deliver a sound that is both natural and liberating, rich in color, and capable of a broad dynamic range.

The scale/nut ratio of 644/51, a specification increasingly sought after by guitarists and personally endorsed by Della Giustina, signifies a shift towards enhanced playability without compromising the guitar’s acoustic properties. This ratio is indicative of the luthier’s forward-thinking approach to design, aiming to meet the evolving preferences of contemporary musicians. The double top technique, devoid of a traditional core, allows for an exceptionally responsive and flexible top, facilitating a sound that is free-flowing and rich in nuances. This Michele Della Giustina creation is not just an instrument but a reflection of the luthier’s innovative vision, blending traditional techniques with modern demands to offer guitarists a tool that excels in both performance and sound quality.
