Petar Antic was born in Belgrade, Serbia, where he grew up surrounded by nature, animals and traditional crafts. As the son of a talented artist and craftsman, he was exposed to natural materials and attention to detail at an early age. At the age of 14, he was introduced to the guitar. Fascinated by a concert by Andres Segovia, he quickly realised that the guitar was his passion. Being left-handed, he had difficulties finding a suitable guitar at the time, which led him to learn the art of guitar making. Petar found his own way, his own vision and style of guitar making, combining the heritage of the great traditional masters with his own personal taste and aesthetics.
Petar Antic sadly passed away far too soon recently, and this guitar was brought to us personally by his son. As it is a show model that has been in Petar’s workshop since its completion in 2015, it is technically new and can be considered New Old Stock (NOS).
This Petar Antic 8-string guitar is beautiful in every way. Having remained in Petar’s workshop since it was built in 2015, it is technically new and can be considered new old stock (NOS). It offers a wide tonal spectrum and excellent sonority. A unique feature of this fine guitar is that it has a top made of white mahogany. This offers a warm, direct sound with an incredibly fast and agile response. With its beautiful and controlled overtones, this guitar is a very pleasant to play and unique multi-stringed instrument that is suitable for many different styles and a broad repertoire.
