What Musicians say about my Work:
  • "the guitar has arrived safely, I only unpacked it and it played as if by itself, a fabulous instrument! So much just briefly; now I'm in a hurry to spend the rest of the day with the maple guitar! With warm regards!" Reinhard Mey
  • "...this oud is an absolute masterpiece. For those of you who haven’t heard it, I can assure you that the sound is absolutely amazing and the construction quality, first class. As for the design, revolutionary and aesthetically exquisite. There’s definitely a future here." Ross M. Daly
  • "At first, I thought this is simply a very good guitar. As I played it again and again during the next days, I was increasingly amazed by the possibilities it offered. I have played many excellent guitars, but I have never encountered such an instrument. It is really something special!"Peter Berlind Carlson, Prof. for guitar, Royal College of Music, Stockholm
  • "...I can feel that you made this guitar with your heart and I am thankful for your outstanding craftmanship that lets me enjoy music more than before!" There are only two things worrying me: that I'll spend more time to play guitar and that I don't want to play my other guitars anymore..." A guitarist from Taiwan
  • "...the instrument met every detail that I requested with a few wonderful surprises...This guitar is truly a guitar for the ages!"Rodney Burr, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
  • "...I just had to take a break because I was too overwhelmed/excited by the sound and the quality of the tone. My girlfriend saw me walking cheerfully everytime I left my practice room, and at some point she asked me if I was having an affair!"A customer from Canada
  • "I didn’t know what I was getting into… Already now, the guitar superceeds all my expectations. I am now playing a guitar that soundwise translates everything I previously could only surmise. It is ready and all set, only waiting for me to impart my musical ideas, feelings and fantasies in order to make these audible in the most enchanting manner..."A guitarist from northern Germany
  • Correction of intonation of a Daniel Friederich guitar by refretting it after the Frisch/Stenzel method:
    "...I wanted to give thanks once more, ... the guitar came out fantastic, for me it is a completely new instrument! In the past I always had a love-hate relationship with it. I think, the intonation problems masked all its wonderful properties. I addition, I no longer hear these wavering sounds, the guitar now sounds clean and much more brilliant. ... For all your labour I want to thank you again very very much. Now it's a great joy to play this guitar!"José Fernández Bardesio
  • "...your guitar is unbelievable! All students are enthusiastic as well. ...By all means I am completely happy and can only congratulate you to this masterpiece!" Matthias Seidel, Prof. for guitar at University Mozarteum Salzburg
  • "This guitar makes me want to be a better human!"Enrique G., USA
