„My design label is founded by my father and me as a design label for textile design in Trier in 1985. We are still working successful for the textile industry. Since I’m thirteen I play guitar and a few years later I bought my first electric guitar in a second hand shop. It was a very bad and old guitar and the start of my “guitar builder career”. Repairing of spoiled necks and changing pickups become my hobby and my old grandfather, who was a master joiner, helps me a lot.

The passion of building guitar doesn’t decrease with the fact that I was able to afford to buy the old American Classics guitars later. In the last years I had repaired a lot of old guitars and playing them on stage, build up the knowledge for my guitar designs, which I had developed in the past and will develop in the future.”
