Claudia & Claudio Pagelli, Switzerland

Artists, artisans - the line blurs.  The indefatigable team of Claudia (design) and Claudio (execution) Pagelli have crafted a remarkable body of work over the past decades.  Some of the most interesting instruments in the history of the guitar have come from their workshop.  You could use a thousand words to describe them...  at the end it is simple: they are unique.

«There are not many opportunities in a luthier‘s life like the one that arose with
the Carcavelos story. You don‘t get almost 300 year old Mahogany every day. And the story behind it is equally valuable. The only thing more exciting is the idea of starting a joint venture with some of the best guitar builder colleagues. Amazing to see what has become of it!»
