The construction materials
Choosing the right materials plays a decisive role in the ultimate quality of a musical instrument. So, the woods, bonds and shellac/ varnish that are being used play a dominant role in the guitar construction. Also, good tuners and guitar case complete the experience the player will have.
For Andreas, he always chooses to use high quality woods that have been bought from great European stores. He manages to keep them in a stable environment by controlling temperature and humidity. This way he achieves a good sound result full of harmonics. He uses only high quality tuners and guitar cases, that each customer can choose according to his preferences.
For building a guitar, the woods that are being used are:
Soundboard: cedar and spruce options.
Back & Sides: indian rosewood, pau ferro, ebony, bubinga, ovangkol etc.
Neck: spanish cedar or kaya.
Fingerboard: ebony and stainless steel frets.
Rosettes are all handmade.
Andreas builds guitars on his own patterns, using techniques and thoughts of great masters such as Friedrich, Smallman, Marty etc., this way he achieves to create a unique and full sound.
