Fraulini guitars are hand built, in a traditional fashion, one guitar at a time. I started my training in my early 20s, working with an old violin builder. For the most part, my education has come from reading old technical manuals; talking with other traditional luthiers; repairing, restoring, and measuring hundreds of old guitars; and building new instruments for over ten years. I have been fortunate enough to get feedback from some of the best musicians in the business, and I've incorporated their feedback into my building. While many luthiers are about embracing advances in technology, I'm about reviving traditional techniques that have been lost to modern generations and becoming effective and efficient at using those techniques.
I still carve my own necks, cut my own inlays and make all my own parts, so there are lots of options available to suit your tastes. I enjoy working with people on selecting different options for their particular instrument. When you order a Fraulini, you are ordering a hand-made, one-of-a-kind instrument, built in a traditional style, and tailored to your specific requests.
If you have any questions or comments about any of the instruments you've seen, or content of this website, send me an e-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org
If you think you're interested in ordering a custom instrument, I look forward to working with you.
