detail is well thought out.We are happy to offer the work of these luthiers in Germany and to
give our customers the opportunity to find instruments they might have been dreaming of for a long time.

His basses represent top craftsmanship and highest quality and he is obsessed with details. Endorsers such as Victor Wooten, Anthony Jackson or Matthew Garrison prove this impressively.
L. Ellis Hahn - L.e.H. Guitars (Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY)
Ellis Hahn from Red Hook, Brooklyn, is the new star in the New York luthier scene. However, this is not entirely correct, as Ellis has been working in Roger Sadowsky's workshop since 2006 and has become his right hand and a true Master Builder over the years.

Pete Skjold - Skjold Design Guitars (Warsaw, OH)
Pete is the second "insider tip" at Fendt's Finest. Pete builds some of the most spectacular basses we’ve ever played.
In his workshop in rural Warsaw, Pete builds his basses completely by hand. Although he is well known in the USA
and highly appreciated by all his colleagues, Pete is largely unknown in Germany.
We are happy to offer Pete's instruments exclusively in Europe and to debut with them in Germany.
Gregor Fris from basstheworld.com had the opportunity to test our basses
and was completely thrilled. Watch his video here.
Michael Tobias - Michael Tobias Design (Kingston, NY)
Michael Tobias is another of the luthiers' veterans. Together with his son Daniel and another employee,
he builds his basses with his brand MTD in a small workshop in the woods of Kingston, Upstate New York.

constructions. Each of his handmade US instruments is a true masterpiece and reflects many years of experience.
He is one of the great luthiers who are a role model for many young instrument makers.
