Default Rafał Turkowiak guitars

Found these in the Guitars in Stock thread. Not only is his playing impressive but his guitars are quite unusual. Things like sound flutes in the neck and a lot of unusual customization differences.

There are a whole bunch of demos on YouTube of his guitars. He is out of Poland. Curious what others think.

Thanks for the post; I had not heard of him.

Visually they are quite something, and he seems to push the technology envelope too. A bit like Casimi meets Ryan.

Very interesting.

Hi
It is me who put two guitars with demo videos in the thread Guitars In Stock March 2021. I am Turkowiak distributor, I ship worldwide, from USA to Australia and Japan.

I also offer zoom presentations so if anyone is interested to take a closer look - just let me know.

Best
Marcin

Thank you for chiming in. Could you explain the techniques used by this interesting luthier? Eg what is the meaning of his hi tech press for the back and sides - is that laminated woods?

I had also been looking at these guitars, wonderfully conceived and executed.

Some Turkowiak guitars are in USA already so maybe you can try it. Take a look at this auction on Reverb https://reverb.com/item/39023961-raf...build-acoustic

I am still not clear what the high tech press is even from your website...
