Roland Scharbatke was born in the German city of Gotha, in Thuringia, in 1952. At 7, the entire family fled to West Germany, where he eventually found a new home in Iserlohn. His later career choice was based on his love for woods. He began an apprenticeship in cabinetmaking, where he learned everything he needed to know as a craftsman. As a journeyman, he deepened his knowledge and experience for another nine years in various workshops before he passed the master’s examination in this trade in 1979. In addition to his career as a cabinetmaker, his passion for playing the guitar logically led him to guitar-making.

He then traveled to Erlangen and visited the workshop of Gerold Karl Hannabach in Bubenreuth. Impressed by the knowledge and skills of the young craftsman, Gerold Karl Hannabach accepted Roland as his student in guitar-making. In 1989, Roland passed his master’s examination in the craft of plucked instrument making. Later in the same year, he set up his workshop in a wonderful old building in the center of Iserlohn.

Roland Scharbatke builds his guitars exclusively to the highest standards of craftsmanship and aesthetics, with purism as a trademark. His sense of aesthetics is expressed throughout the guitar, especially in the rosette and the headstock. Fascinated by the Japanese sense of style, clean lines, and simplicity, Roland Scharbatke builds his guitars without compromise, equally as musical instruments and art pieces.

The 2016 guitar crafted by Roland Scharbatke is a masterpiece that marries form and function in a display of unparalleled craftsmanship.

The use of top-grade cedar for the soundboard and Indian rosewood for the back and sides not only contributes to the instrument’s spectacular material quality but also enhances its tonal richness.
