Q: Tell us a bit about Hufschmid Guitars? What models are in the range and what can people expect from your instruments?
Thank you for taking the time to interview me! I am a small artisan working in an extremely small worshop (5 square meters) in the basement of my little house. I have been playing guitar for almost 25 years, this has given me enough knowledge and experience about the instrument in order to start to put together my own ideas.
Back in 1996, I went abroad to the USA to study guitar building at the celebrated Red Wing Technical College in Minessota. This gave me the practical knowledge to start to build my very own instruments which I have constantly refined ever since.
I build between 11-15 guitars every year with my 2 hands and my approach to building is natural and based on physics as suposed to poetry, romance and 100000 coats of lacquer! To me authentic work is something which I am very proud about and I enjoy sharing this with customers who understand the difference between a handmade instrument and a mass produced one. more
