Steel strings on guitars began to be mounted in the USA in the early 1900s. These instruments had to meet the needs of musicians who played in emerging jazz bands and needed more sound volume. In the catalogs of guitars of the time, initially, the steel strings were indicated as “optional”, only from the 1920s they became a standard.
Today’s folk guitars, including high-end ones, are mostly mass-produced and the universally recognized standard models are, in my opinion, products designed for the industry.
My guitar is born from the studio of Torres, Hauser and Martin, and from a combination of American tradition and classical European construction methods: it is the attempt to bring the two guitars together after more than a century.
It is a very light instrument, easy to play, with a large sound volume and a wide dynamic range.
The Folk model is made without using materials that require CITES certification.
I am able to customize the length of the string, the widths of the fretboard and the neck size of my guitars according to individual needs.
