First, what the guitar press has to say: The following excerpt was taken from Akustische Gitarren, a 432-page book published by GC Carstensen Verlag about the history and construction techniques of guitar building. Teja Gerken, Michael Simons, Frank Ford and Richard Johnston are the contributing authors.
“Today, luthiers like John Monteleone, Linda Manzer, Bob Benedetto and also Europeans, such as Stefan Hahl are pushing the standards of acoustic archtop guitar building to new heights. The German luthier Stefan Hahl is one of the premier jazz guitar builders in Europe.”
