- bass guitars
Christian Celinder (born in 1964, Copenhagen), is a Danish luthier and founder of CELINDER Guitar Design. Celinder incorporates modern-day knowledge to produce some of the finest hand-built bass guitars on the market.
Celinder studied as a pianist at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen, before falling in love with the bass. He learned the double-bass and bass guitar from Bo Stief and Niels Henning Ørsted Pedersen (NHØP) before starting his lutherie business at the Basslab in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1987.
In 1990 he began making his own basses, with models inspired by the Fender Jazz and Precision bass designs.
