Wolfgang Jellinghaus has been building guitars since the age of fourteen. He was born in 1951 in Dortmund, Germany, the son of a guitar maker, where he grew up with guitars at an early age. Over the years he developed a great passion and expertise for this instrument. Wolfgang Jellinghaus has been living and working in China for several years, where he builds handmade guitars of astonishing quality in a small manufactory.
His latest series is the Wolfgang Jellinghaus Signature. This is a very modern guitar with some interesting features, such as the floating fingerboard, which is not fixed to the top, so this part of the top vibrates freely and contributes to the overall sound. The sound volume becomes very powerful, also thanks to the very light double-top construction. This makes it possible to produce a very full and room-filling tone with little effort of the right hand. Due to its 64cm scale, it is particularly easy to play, and the armrest also contributes to the overall comfort. The guitar is finished with shellac which completes the overall picture of this instrument very nicely. In this price category, the guitar is more than convincing.
