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.
This superb romantic guitar is based on a model from the 1820s by Parisian luthier René Lacôte. Lacôte’s guitars were highly appreciated by the music scene at the time, and are still very recognized for their finesse, beauty of tone and ease of playing. This replica has some interesting modern details, such as the rosette and the headstock, reminding us that this new instrument is a modern adaptation of the romantic guitar of the 19th century.
