Nils Schebesta is a talented young guitar maker who started his apprenticeship as a luthier ten 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 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.
This superb guitar has an exciting story. As Nils brought us his last guitar and visited our shop, a beautiful 2010 Fritz Ober guitar caught his attention. It had a beautiful three-piece back with flamed maple and a snakewood middle part. With this picture in mind, Nils built the instrument we present today, using the same wood combination. The result is phenomenal, and what an eyecatcher! Nils remained faithful to his concept, and this traditional guitar features an elevated fingerboard. One fascinating detail is the rosette displaying by transparency the sublime colour of a 24-carat gold leaf. This precious material shines through an extremely thin layer of bone and gives this guitar a unique personality.
