Sebastian Stenzel has been making guitars since 1989 when he began his apprenticeship at Gert Esmyol’s workshop. He completed this apprenticeship in 1991 and focused on developing his personal guitar model. In 1996, he finally opened his own workshop in Munich. Shortly afterwards, in 1998, he was awarded the Bavarian Government’s Master’s Prize as part of his master’s degree. As a “guitar-making theory” professor, he has been teaching at the Mozarteum in Salzburg since 2002. Since 2011, he has been working in his workshop in Emmendingen. Following his ideal of sound, he builds guitars that “have sonorous, floating basses, a warm, creamy mid-range and lyrical, singing trebles. The sound should offer the musician all possibilities of sound shaping and dynamics, without being obtrusive.” (Quote: S. Stenzel)
Sebastian Stenzel’s guitars are outstanding works of art. They possess all the essential elements to be considered “the best guitar one ever played.” His guitars are built with the highest precision of craftsmanship and artistic acoustic quality, which makes them one-of-a-kind instruments to play and look at.
This beautiful guitar from the year 2000 is an excellent instrument that is delightful to play. Due to Sebastian’s scientific yet intuitive approach to guitar-making, this traditionally built guitar delivers all the necessary aspects for being an excellent concert guitar. This work of art has it all, from a perfect balance, a volume that can effortlessly match modern construction guitars, beautiful tonal quality, and exceptional playability. This pre-owned guitar is in very good condition. The varnish has been refreshed and shows only some superficial signs of playing. It is a perfect chance to have a highly demanded guitar by Sebastian Stenzel without a long waiting time and at a very attractive price.
