Welcome to guitar making Döttlinger
On this website I’d like to give you an insight into my philosophy and work as a luthier (guitar maker).
The making of classical guitars is my passion.
My pursuit is to build distinguished guitars with remarkable sound characteristics.
I create a selected number of instruments in the good tradition of craftsmanship.
Each guitar has its own characteristic sound, and every guitarist has his/her own
unique playing technique and preferred pitch.
Thus it is my goal to build guitars, which accomplish the best
sound and playing techniques depending on the preferences of a guitar player.
The guitar and the guitarist are meant to complement each other and form an
entity that makes music a great/unforgettable experience.
Each guitar is customised and individually aligned with the requirements of my
A handcrafted instrument has its own unique presence, which is and remains
something particularly exceptional.
Only exquisite, matured wood is used in order to achieve a sound at the best possible rate.
The tone woods for my guitars are hand selected by me from high quality tone wood supplier.
Apart from building classical guitars, I equally carry out repairs.
In addition the replication of historical instruments is a fascinating field and from
time to time I have the exclusive opportunity to reconstruct such an instrument.
