Florian Vorreiter

Luthier (B.A.), Master Craftsman

Florian Vorreiter received extensive training in the traditional techniques of guitar making during his 2-year apprenticeship in Austria. He went on to complete his thesis on contemporary classical guitar making at university in Germany, and then established his workshop in Canada (2007).
Florian's work is defined by painstakingly traditional craftsmanship, a well-founded scientific approach and the relentless desire to push the envelope.

His instruments range from replicas that imitate the aesthetics and sound of old Europe, to modern and rebellious objects of art that challenge contemporary guitar and lute making.
