are a family-run craft workshop in Markneukirchen in the Vogtland. Here in the
Musikwinkel, musical instruments have been manufactured for over 300 years, a
tradition we are keen to follow. Partly using modern production methods, we are
proud to make musical instruments by hand. Our guitar-making techniques also
include Spanish and American plucked-instrument making styles. We use
high-quality tonewoods, seasoned for at least ten years.
new instrument is created in close cooperation with the customer and
exclusively according to their requirements. Models can be selected from our
extensive range, and details individually combined. The individual design and
development process means that the finished product is a distinctive and unique
Choice of woods
Choice of hardware (components, makes, colours)
Choice of pickups (make, number, colour with / without frame)
Our instruments are decorated with artistic
figures according to the wishes of our customers. Handmade, inlaid and engraved
by Friederike Preuß, these figures are made mainly of real mother-of-pearl and
/or different metals. Each original PreußGuitars instrument can be recognised
by the company logo in solid mother-of-pearl. Customers can opt to have their individual
inlay on the instrument of their choice. For this we mostly require just a
sketch or photo as a PDF or JPG file.
We carry out repair and restoration work of
older or used instruments professionally and sensitively. In the case of
complex breaks or complete restorations we do our best to save as much of the
original mass of the instrument as possible.
