Every single one of Philipp’s guitars is the product of a long, intense process. He uses all his knowledge and experience to produce high quality instruments. Therefore, he never builds more than two guitars at the same time, so that he can concentrate on every detail. Since the sound of the instrument depends greatly on the type of material that are used, he uses only the best quality tone woods and no prefabricated parts at all. A guitar is not finished until it completely satisfies his demands for a clear and open sound with full and round basses, clear and brilliant trebles, modulated timbre, a singing, sustained tone and responsiveness. The results are melodious, unique pieces and professional instruments for guitarists. His work is based on the Spanish Granada tradition of guitar making using time-tested techniques. The methods incorporate an analysis of historic guitars and modern insights into acoustic processes and the wishes of today’s musicians. Whilst he is very traditional, he is also open to experiments. He tries to combine traditional instrument building skills with modern methods in order to develop the sound of the guitar for the future.
This wonderful guitar has a unique design that allures the guitarist to take an extra look before starting to play. Fine details surround the entire build with intricate inlay patterns and exquisite rosette details. The sound is big and bold, dense robust trebles paired with deep basses with plenty of sustain. Because it is a 64 cm scale guitar it is very comfortable to play on, that one centimeter makes long stretches a fair amount easier. Philipp is a talented luthier that incorporates different approaches to make a work of art that also is a true concert guitar.
