- electric guitars
Valery Vaschenko has been making guitars for over 20 years in his workshop outside of Novopolotsk, Belarus. Vaschenko started out in engineering during the Soviet era, but was also a guitar player from childhood. While working at a Soviet space vehicle plant, he would also do stringed instrument repairs for friends. This sideline developed into a full time job and soon he was making guitars as well. Vaschenko's electric guitars are inspired by the tradition of the classic 1950s designs. He employs similar construction techniques and materials but also incorporates new ideas into his instruments.
