I was seven years old when I first saw an electric guitar. It looked kind of dangerous and thrilling to me, and instantly I knew: I wanna have that. Ever since I’m addicted to the guitar, and in addition to my passion for playing, I spent even more time exploring all the aspects concerning this fascinating instrument and its history. To me, the electric guitar is more than just an instrument. It's kind of a statement, it's got a strong vibe you can’t resist and it forces you to listen and look. My approach is to come up with fresh ideas concerning the overall shape, ergonomics and cosmetics to make guitars look cool, weird, elegant, dangerous and just different. This ist challenge and passion at the same time.
I’ve been working as a designer since 1996, in 2002 I developed my first guitar design. Over the years I've created a variety of unique designs for electric guitar and lap steel, most of them were built as one-offs. I‘ve won the design contest „design your dream guitar" by Germanys leading magazine Gitarre & Bass three times in a row.
