Kim Lissarrague


began making his first guitar in 1991 at the age of thirteen. He was drawn to guitar making through his love of music and a keen interest in working with wood.

At fourteen he had the great fortune of meeting the luthier Peter Biffin who inspired him to really understand and experiment with new techniques for building instruments, to refine and develop all aspects of the guitar, to make them play and sound better, which he has continued to do.

Working in Melbourne for James Cargill after completing school, he refined his skills repairing and making electric and acoustic instruments for Cargill Custom Guitars.

These days he has a small workshop in Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, where he makes a limited number of high-quality guitars per year.

He has developed his own designs based on the 'Australian School' of guitar making. The guitar he has to offer you is a lattice-braced, arched back classical guitar, which has superb projection, clarity and sustain. Combining a full and rich tone, with bright trebles and warm basses.

His guitars are beautifully handcrafted, using the highest quality materials available. Anyone looking for a guitar with plenty of power and volume will find these qualities in a Lissarrague.
