All Guttlins






Welcome !

In 2007 I started building my own guitars. Being a musician I have a lot of different guitars of the usual renown brands.

But I really wanted to create my own models. I didn't want to merely copy an established model, at the same time I was looking for a shape that would have a certain "vintage" feel to it. After numerous attempts and failures, I finally came up with a guitar that refers from a distance to the classics but at the same time has a unique and recognizable identity of its own: the Thin King.

In the meantime more original Guttlin designs were created, for different guitar types and basses. Check the various models and builds in the above menu.

Recently I got into pickup making aswell, resulting in the Guttlin brand "BarBar Pickups".  Also bridges, tailpieces and knobs are all made in house.  And everything is done the "vintage" way: no CNC, 3 D printing, or outsourcing: hence the baseline HANDCRAFTED ORIGINALS.

Enjoy exploring the various models of these modern vintage guitars and feel free to send me an e-mail or follow me on facebook and instagram where I post ongoing projects.
