As the string maker that helped define the standards by which all others are measured, Kurt Glaesel helped develop the MENC specification for string instrument shop adjustment. Today, these instruments follow the same standard with a focus on quality, craftsmanship, and tradition. Glaesel’s European built bodies are completely shop adjusted in Cleveland, Ohio to ensure the highest level of performance.
Expertly made in Romania with respected traditions and old world craftsmanship. Fully shop adjusted and set up in the USA by hand in by hand in Glaesel’s Cleveland Ohio facility by skilled craftsmen for the best possible performance experience and inspiration. The solid carved spruce top provides an excellent sound board. The maple back and sides enhance greater projection and a refined tonal quality. Full hand inlaid purfling (not painted) protects the solid top and back plates from splitting damage and demonstrates an attention to detail that other brands overlook. The subtle shaded lacquer varnish gives durability and visual appeal. True ebony pegs and fingerboard (not stained hardwood) facilitates reliable function and playability for many years. The four removable axle style fine tuners compliment this advancing student instrument.
