Kurt Jaeckle has been building guitars since 2003. Starting out in lutherie as a healthy diversion
from his main job as a physician, Kurt developed his early background skills in woodworking and refinishing under the guidance
of his parents. His father previously co-directed a company which manufactured high quality speaker cabinets for high end
audio manufacturers. Kurt began building with a week-long class under Kent Everett in 2003 and further refined his soundboard
voicing skills under Ervin Somogyi in 2007. Kurt prides himself in finding the optimum voicing for a particular soundboard,
and tailoring the instrument to the guitarist's playing style and application. His goal is to produce the finest instrument
possible for the given application and client. Kurt has also played guitar for over 40 years.
Kurt uses the same attention to detail that he uses in taking care of people. He maintains the highest quality standards
in building, with each instrument carefully constructed from the finest available woods and materials possible, given the
particular application and price point. A combination of intuitive qualitative methods as well as quantitative technical evaluations
are utilized during instrument construction to optimize the responsiveness, focus, and output of each instrument.
Each guitar is constructed by hand, one at a time. This degree of attention to detail takes longer
than production manufacturing but is well worth it. Our main goal is to design and build an instrument that the accomplished
guitarist will treasure for many years to come.
