Vasilis Vasileiadis was born in Grevena, Greece in 1956.
He studied automation engineering and worked also within the field of woodworking. His interest in stringed instruments goes back in the early 80s when he built his first handmade classical guitar.
Nowadays Vasilis lives in Kozani, where he has established his guitar workshop.
His passion to study acoustics and wood behavior and to research on instruments’ construction led him to handcraft elegant classical guitars and established himself as a professional luthier.
His craftsmanship has been appreciated by famous guitar players all over the world.
Every instrument built by Vasilis receives his undivided attention and devotion to create an ideal sound experience that meets the player’s needs.
The tonewoods he is using are of excellent quality, quarter sawn, carefully selected by specialized suppliers and certified, when needed, by special organizations, such as CITES.
The guitars are finished in French polish of shellac in combination with natural resins and other synthetic oils, all applied by hand, resulting in instruments that are admired for their flawless classical beauty.
For the construction of the top of the guitar, Vasilis uses lattice bracing from balsa wood and carbon fibers, or traditional methods of bracing in combination with double top technique using Nomex lamination.
The tone balance and evenness in these models are achieved through the resonance of the top and the back of the guitar.
As a result, each guitar is handcrafted to the highest quality to ensure rich and robust sound, outstanding playability and exquisite finishing.
The soundboard of this model is lattice braced.
