A while ago a customer visited our workshop and wanted his guitar to be repaired. He said “there is just one thing, I have no money”. Then he said. If you repair it I can pay with some planks of beautiful wood. We did it and got a plank of zebrawood. It turned out to
The second seafoam green guitar where just the top is lacquered. So cool to see the natural mahogany horns behind this colored maple top. Neck is maple as well and of course Ebony is perfect for the fretboard.
This U8 Deluxe has been refinished by Jaakko Peltonen in Finland. It is a all mahogany with an ebony fretboard. A heavy beast that just looks gorgeous.
One of the most beautiful AU8 guitars we ever did. We think there is nothing else to say.
This U8 Custom has been build for the Devin Townsend Empath Tour in Europe. An amazing piece of art swirled by Richard Fay in the UK.
The first U10 that has been build at our workspace in Austria. It has a swamp ash body, 3-piece maple neck and a Snakewood fretboard. Comment from our customer “While other instruments plays like an elephant this is a refreshing weasle…”
We love transparent cherry guitars …. in this case also with cherry wood, a maple neck and walnut fretboard. The first solid T8 we did so far.
Inspired by the U8 Custom we did at the beginning of this year a customer asked for a walnut top. We still had the sister part on stock so we built this beautiful U8 Deluxe with a slight burst finish. It has a black Korina body, korina/walnut/korina 3-piece neck and a maple fretboard. The pickups
We made this guitar for a customer that absolutely loves quilted maple and we think it turned out to look amazing. The body is made of alder with a greenburst quilted maple top. Neck and fretboard are made of plumwood, a local wood we really love. It has a Delano Pickup which sounds amazing and
Stefan treavelled through the redwoods in california at the beginning of this year. Two weeks after a customer asked if we could do a T8 with a redwood top. What a lucky coincidence. This T8 has a redwood top, european cedar body, 3-piece cedar/walnut/cedar neck and a walnut fretboard. One of the best feeling guitars

In this blog you get some impressions from our workshop in Austria. We finished the latest instruments while a snow storm was raging outside and is was nearly impossible to reach the workshop. It was worth the stress and strains.
We’ve been to NAMM…. Stefan was invited by our friends of Earthquaker Devices and Kemper Amps to do some demos with his new U8 Custom. The reactions to this beautiful instrument were absolutely amazing.

Stefan came up with this idea of a custom U8. He loves purple heart and the semi hollowed feel of the AU8. Why should we not combine this. It has a black korina body, 3-piece korina/purple heart/korina fretboard and the first prototype of our mellow pickups which is splittable as a single coil. We also
We had this idea of a bicolored T8 after finishing the first prototype. It looks amazing with the seafoam green maple top on a mahogany body. Fretboard is ebony. Photos by Thomas Buchta
This T8 is one of the lightest instruments we ever built. It is all maple with a swamp ash body. This was the first time we used our vintage pickups and it really sound JBass like. Photos by Thomas Buchta
