"Our beloved luthier brother Rolf Spuler passed away on April 18th, 2014, after fighting a year against a difficult illness. So sad news. Rolf was a dear friend of mine, we've known each other for 15 years or so, regularly meeting at guitar shows, enjoying lengthy discussions about guitars and life in general. Rolf was among the first luthiers invited to exhibit at The Holy Grail Guitar Show, and even though he told me at that time about his condition and that he couldn't exhibit and most likely not even visit the show, he was still hopeful to perhaps beat the illness. Rolf was a great designer and luthier. Loved his witty sense of humour, too. Rest in peace Rolf, you will be greatly missed."
