The owl is the label of my guitars. I chose it because it resembles me a little...

Great Owl Guitars was born from the passion for the guitar, after years of studying the art of guitar making and the knowledge of materials.

Guitars are completely handmade, woods are personally selected for its beauty, aging and especially for its acoustic properties.

The models are based on the U.S. school, with variants in the forms and the details of constructions.

My choice for the top is the Val di Fiemme spruce or Sitka, very popular in the United States, or the Adirondack a North American conifer. For the sides and back I rather vary my choices, ranging from the Indian Rosewood, Koa that comes from the Hawaiian Islands, various African and South American Rosewood, the Mahogany from Honduras, and European maple.

The guitars are built to customer requirements, and are often amplified with solutions that do not affect the integrity of the instrument, which is guaranteed for life.
