A Mechanical Engineer, turned classical guitarist, turned guitar builder; Swiss luthier Claudio Meneghelli has had quite a journey to the opening of his workshop in 2002. From his humble beginnings on his kitchen table to a series of workshops with Jose and Liam Romanillos he has worked hard to refine his craft and skill.

This 2009 guitar highlights his aesthetic, with light colored wood and a light build; but a huge sound. Meneghelli helps achieve the big tone with cypress lined sides and perfectly braced spruce top that packs a wallop and delivers rich tone. The interlocking rings of his rosette are a lovely design addition that highlights Meneghelli’s long developed workmanship.
