Reaching Higher / San Francisco 2013

Michael Spalt (president of EGB) and Juha Ruokangas (vice president of EGB) were two of the many European guitar makers invited to showcase their works in Santa Rosa, California, at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival - one of the most appreciated boutique guitar shows around.

Michael and Juha standing on the top of the world (in this case the Twin Peaks, San Francisco), reaching higher with the future plans to raise the awareness of handmade guitars in Europe to a new level.

It’s Official / Berlin 2013

In May 2013 our efforts solidified when the registration of the association was confirmed in Germany, to be called 'The European Guitar Builders, e.V.' (EGB), located in Berlin!

EGB Founding Meeting / Vienna 2012

Teuffel, Frank Deimel, Kora Jünger and Jacques Carbonneaux came to Vienna to meet with Andreas Neubauer, Michael and Tania Spalt with the goal of founding a European luthier organization that would start working on a new breed of international guitar exhibition - an event designed to raise the bar to a level never seen before.

As a result of the memorable weekend - filled with intense discussions and good food (Andreas, your goulash was divine!) in great company - the founding documents of The European Guitar Builders association were signed, sealed and delivered!
