Hadar

Hadar: A Ferangeli Student Luthier

Hadar, from Israel, a guitar enthusiast who wants to know more about how the instrument is made was looking for people to teach him the craft. When he found out about Ferangeli Guitar Handcrafter, he then came to the shop inquiring if we could teach him how to make his own guitar, and with the future goal of teaching other people, from his homeland, in the art of guitar-making. As he was more than willing to learn we were also more than willing to teach him.

During his stay, he was guided by the Andoy, the master luthier, on to what he’d be doing for the day, or the next succeeding days perhaps. Depending on what he’d be working on, he will be paired with one of our employees for the hands-on.

To document his every progress, he got his camera ready. He took photos and videos of every process and every pieces of his guitar. These documents will serve as his reference when he goes back to Israel and teach other enthusiasts.

Handcrafting doesn’t really end up being clean, here’s his selfie:

The moment when he finished his instrument, we took a video of him playing and he’s very happy with it! Check it out:

The time he left to go back to his hometown, he gave us a copy of his progress photos, that’s where we got the photos posted above.

Eddie

Eddie with his two new Classical Guitars

Two classical guitars just got loved!

Eddie, a flamenco player from Australia, customized 2 classical guitars from us, one Humpback and one Ramirez Classical Guitar.

Eddie Humpback Classical GuitarThe Humpback Classical Guitar

He first found out about us was from a mall exhibit. He got amazed the first time he tried to pay one of our Humpback Classical Guitars, but didn’t decide to buy it yet. The time he visited our shop, looking for a similar instrument, but sadly it was no longer available for sale. We told him he can customize his own Humpback Classical Guitar.

His guitar had a Solid Engelmann Spruce top with Solid Mango Humpback, and arm rest of Philippine Ebony (Kamagong). Inlayed on the headstock of this guitar are his initials A and F, and with the flower fingerboard inlays.

 

Eddie Ramirez Classical GuitarThe Ramirez Classical Guitar

Taking a quick tour around our  showroom, he saw our Ramirez Classical Guitar with the falling leaves inlay and a guitarist inlay at the back but unfortunately it already had an owner. He decided to customize his own guitar with the same specifications.

The top wood was a Solid Engelmann Spruce, with a Solid Indian Rosewood back and sides. Attached on his guitar was a Fishman active pick-up.

The guitarist inlay on the guitar looks like this:

Guitarist Inlay

After months of waiting, he finally got hold of his guitars and immediately started playing with them.

He also quoted:

I really love the sound of the humpback guitar.
