This site documents my journey from the initial idea of building my own concert classical guitar, the reasons why, the hows, the pitfalls, the lessons learned, and….

shall try to provide an answer to the following question: “Was it worth it?”

if you have questions, comments or if you want to share your own experience… Please feel free to contact me marc@schmidt-guitars.com

This is not a commercial website since I am not selling my instruments. (And don’t plan to do so in the near future).

Considering the time the devotion and the passion it takes to complete one instrument, (between 100 and 150 hours from start to finish) it would break my heart to see them leave my home.

I play them all, and often times I will swap guitars several times during one practice session,

Cheers, Marc
