Nils Schebesta is a talented young guitar maker who started his apprenticeship as a luthier 10 years ago. After finishing his apprenticeship he studied guitar making in Markneukirchen and refined his skills during various internships and workshops. Before he moved into his own workshop in Leipzig at the beginning of 2019, he worked for a violin maker for several years. From his workshop he builds instruments inspired by both the German and French tradition. Some features that stands out is the usage of elevated fretboards for easy access in the upper registers, the guitars are all responsive and they have a sober, mature design.
This instrument is a joy to play and of course to smell, due to the aromatic aroma from the cypress.

The basses are crisp and snappy with a dazzling rich texture, paired with sweet trebles that have an airy quality to them, makes the guitar a real joy to play. When inspecting the nooks and crannies of the guitar, it is put together with an experts eyes and hands. A clean and charming design is what meets the eye. Easy to play with a great access to the upper registers. We are sure that this instrument will suit anyone who looks for a great sounding guitar within a very reasonable price range.
