Spohn Guitars

By Max Spohn

As an instrument maker I am motivated by the desire to improve and develop my art, skills and to evolve the idea of what it means to build one-of-a-kind instruments in the 21st century.

With my artists sensibility I find inspiration for new designs by regularly visiting both commercial and fine art galleries. Nature is also a deep source of inspiration in my design: The swirl of a leaf, the hypnotic arc of the nautilus shell, the flow of water over stone.

Great guitars must have a wide dynamic range, be tonally balanced – without masking any of the frequency ranges – constructed from the best materials, be comfortable to hold, and beautiful to the eye. A guitar should feel like a natural extension of the body and at the same time present itself as art. It must be an instrument that allows the player to explore musical worlds that he or she may not have known existed – such is the capability of the best instruments.

To achieve a balance of these aspects into one single instrument, I use only the best materials and process them with the utmost care and precision that they deserve. No guitar leaves the shop that doesn’t meet my standards and the expectations of the person who commissioned the instrument.
