Otto Vowinkel began making guitars in 1984, using “Classical Guitar Construction” by Irving Sloane as his guide. In 1989 he met Dutch guitar maker Alex ‘Alejandro’ van der Horst (1959-2009) and began an ongoing collaboration. They shared their ideas about ‘the ideal guitar: a flexible tone, a quick response and the quality of the sound as the carrier of volume. Since then Otto Vowinkel has become a renowned luthier in the classical guitar world - with customers across the globe.
