Hand Made Guitars by Luthier Dan Koentopp

Stay Connected


I love that my art is something that will inspire others. My instruments are an extension of me, but they’re infinitely open to absorbing and creating new energy from the people who play them. I take each instrument up to a certain point and then it is up to the musician to push the guitar to its furthest potential. I strive in making this connection easy for the player. In the end, the guitar is a tool. The easier it is for a player to forget about it, the more successful I am.
