Years of closely studying traditional instrument building techniques as well as trials performed with experimental designs and painstakingly detailed tests have produced a wealth of experience and today’s master built guitars.
Of course, without quality materials, an artisan, regardless of the level of skill, cannot create a quality instrument. Stefan Hahl exclusively uses carefully seasoned and aged 60-year old tone woods to create instruments with timbres that are usually only possible with older instruments.
Stefan Hahl never tires in his pursuit of the optimum solution for each musician’s style, ability and aspirations. Rather than a spectacular revolution in design, it’s often the small details, which appear unimportant at the first glance, that make the difference between a guitar and a master-crafted guitar. Such an approach involves an extremely time-consuming process and requires a luthier with a receptive ear, however, it is a method that produces incredible guitars, which retain their value for years to come.
