The Luthier

Davide Serracini

was born in 1978 in Rome, Italy.

Graduated from the Civica Scuola di Liuteria di Milano, he learned from the masters Lorenzo Lippi, Tiziano Rizzi and Aldo lllotta techniques for the construction of plucked musical instruments, and the philological method used in the study and reconstruction of ancient and modern instruments.

His  classical guitar takes inspiration from classics like Antonio De Torres, Renè Lacote, Johann Georg  Stauffer and Hermann Hauser, and develops on a personal line of technology, functionality, simplicity and elegance. Every instrument of its production is unique.

Every guitar is different from the others because he likes to create time after time new instruments leaving inspiration to guide his hands, choosing every time different decorations and shapes.

The current plans for the steel string  guitars are aimed at creating instruments ready, with a high volume and comfortable. The fanned fret fingerboard is very frequent in his guitars because it brings comfort  and  easy playing: it’s not an extreme fan, (644mm to 660mm for standard model, 690mm to 710mm for baritone guitar). Furthermore great attention is given to a balanced sound on all frequencies, a sound that is “round”, warm and deep, brilliant on high frequencies.

All guitars are made with the “Spanish” method, so the neck is one with the body, so it’s stable over time. It’s reinforced not only by the double action truss rod but also by two converging carbon fiber bars.
