About me

After 30 years long corporate career, as a forever lover of fine musical instruments, I decided to devote the last years of my professional career to building beautiful looking and beautiful sounding tools for guitar players. Archtop guitars.

On top of that I am a father of Magdalena - an architect, and Michał - an aeronautical engineer. Michał and I are pilots as well. Michał flies commercial jets and I fly gliders. I am also a grandfather of two and overall a happy man.

After a long, individual study of lutherie, I attended Galloup School of Lutherie, MI, USA. Bryan Galloup has organized an excellent school for guitar builders and technicians. He has selected superb teachers, and two of them, Matt Zalewski and Sam Guidry, were pivotal in my learning of guitar building. When graduating, I knew that I needed to learn more and searched for additional knowledge on the top. I learned from my heroes the best guitar luthiers that walk on the Earth today: Ken Parker, Linda Manzer, Michael Greenfield, and others. I have great respect for all of them. Especially Ken Parker, who shared with me lots of his time and knowledge and gave me the confidence to build. Now I design and build guitars by hand using the knowledge I have gathered from my teachers, but enhancing it with unconventional technologies. The line of instruments that I develop now takes everything that creates positive emotions related to the tradition but does not take it as a limitation. Those beautiful, woody instruments, are technologically advanced as physical structures and as sound generators. They are traditional at the first glimpse, but under closer examination, one can find some titanium alloy here and carbon fiber reinforcement there. Those "novelties" are not there for the sake of modernity. They always serve the purpose: quality of sound generated and comfort of playing. Guitars are, in the end, tools for guitarists. But great tools help the artists to make their art great.
