Rafal Turkowiak was born in Golanice near Leszno, Poland, on 9 January 1966. His father, a carpenter, and grandfather, a wheelwright, greatly influenced him in the field of carpentry and wood technology. Twenty years of guitar-making and experimenting with a very scientific and modern approach brought him to develop construction concepts improving the guitar’s resonance: the “WAVE” structure.
This “Queen of Guitars – Black Diamond” No. 547 is an incredible instrument by the Rafal Turkowiak, a defining model of 2023, that elevates the art of guitar crafting. This exclusive 64cm guitar showcases an eye-catching arched back made from exceptional Vavona Burl. The meticulously crafted spruce top, reinforced with carbon fiber in a light lattice bracing pattern, ensures remarkable responsiveness and feather-light weight.
Inside the neck lies the renowned “Acoustic tube” that elevates the guitar’s resonance, delivering an unmatched sonic experience. With the Black Diamond, producing a room-filling tone requires only minimal effort from the player’s right hand, making it a delight to play. The model boasts crisp trebles and immaculate voice separation, complemented by an evenly balanced bass and treble. This guitar will bring an incredible musical journey that promises unparalleled joy and satisfaction for every guitarist.
