Tobias Braun was born in 1960 in Holzminden, Germany. Shortly after, his family moved to Perchtoldsdorf near Vienna, Austria. In 1983 he built his first concert guitar and a year later he completed a course about guitar making taught by José Romanillos. A second course followed in 1988, and a third course in 1989. In the same year he completed his master’s certificate in Vienna.
This guitar has a spruce top. The back and sides are made of East Indian Rosewood. A special feature is a small tornavoz. Tobias Braun got the inspiration for this from studying the traditional Spanish lutherie. A tornavoz can also be found in guitars made by Antonio de Torres, and has the aim to increase the projection capability of the guitars. The guitar has as a crack that was very well repaired by Karel Dedain. Below the bridge is a dent. The high-end machine heads are by Jörg Graf from Canada.
