Classical guitars

The classical guitars from gbl are characterized by their high volume, a differentiated sound pattern, maximum transparency and fast transient response.

The soundboard bracing is based on classic models like e.g. Hauser, Fleta or Hernandez y Aguado.

The choice of wood also determines the timbre of the instrument: Long seasoned spruce is available for the soundboard.

For the body, you can choose from different tonewoods: maple, East Indian rosewood, rosewood, walnut, cherry.

The necks are preferably made of maple. The customer is free to choose the width and shape of the neck.

The fingerboard consists of seasoned ebony, the bridge is made of rosewood and mother-of-pearl.

Schaller Hauser with ebony buttons are used as mechanisms. But other mechanics are available as well.

The scale is usually 650 mm, saddle and purfling are made of bone.


All instruments are handcrafted in the gbl workshop and are planned together with the customer. Only the best materials are used for construction and repairs. Visitors are always welcome to visit the workshop!
