The perfect guitarblend between East and West
History of Jellinghaus guitars
Wolfgang Jellinghaus learned to build guitars in Germany at the age of 14 and has been closely involved in making classical guitars for many years. For example, in 1983 he designed the first line of Martinez guitars, which were later sold in over 30 countries.
Since 2013, Wolfgang Jellinghaus has been making guitars under his own name again with his project Milestones of Music. He is inspired by the greatest guitar builders of the past 250 years, such as Lacote, Torres, Hauser , Ramirez and Dammann and Esteso.
Buying a Jellinghaus guitar
If you opt for a new or second-hand Jellinghaus guitar, you will see a clear tribute to the past on the outside, but they are not slavish copies. Instead they are, wonderfully playable and perfectly intonated. We wouldn't be surprised if a 100 years from now a luthier will arise who in turn pays tribute to the Great Jellinghaus.
By making the guitars in China, Jellinghaus now offers stunningly beautiful classical guitars at a very competitive price, with exeptional tonewoods, such as the highly sought-after Moon Spruce, are of very high quality.
In addition, Jellinghaus finishes most guitars with a hand-applied lacquer: Schellack or French polish. That takes more time, but makes the Jellinghaus guitars all very light, resonant and it makes the nylon strings really sing. We keep the Jellinghaus guitars in our Vault for a reason!
