This summer, the renowned Jazzguitarist Helmut Nieberle visited our workshop to get to know our instruments. After an intensive introduction and counseling through Armin Hanika he compiled his new working equipment on Basis of the Natural-Doubletop model. Especially the qualitiy of sound of the new design of the top convinced him to this decision. More details are the additional bass-string and a lockable monitor soundhole. After the configuration of the dream-instrument they selected the wood for this special guitar.
After six weeks of building process Helmut was able to take delivery of his new instrument. Straightaway he tested it intensively and was convinced from the very first. We wish Helmut Nieberle many successful concerts and a lot of inspiration with his new guitar.
