Dimitru Manea, the founder of Manea Guitars, learned his woodworking skills as a child in Romania. Toys were not available so Dimitru had to carve his own. At age 6 he fixed up an old guitar and at age 16 he was accepted into music school. By age 17 he emigrated to the USA, where he now works as a luthier. Dumitru’s appreciation for the freedom he has found in America is reflected in Manea Guitars' logo: an eagle’s claw piercing a musical note.
Dumitru once built guitars under the brand name Manea Custom Guitars but this company no longer exists. His new company is simply called called Manea Guitars.
Manea produces almost every imaginable variation on the guitar: acoustic guitars, electric guitars, harp guitars, banjos, mandolins, resonators, as well as the violin family of instruments and special designed orchestra guitars.
