Casimi Guitars

Biography

At Casimi Guitars our highest priority is quality.  Excellence in design and excellence in craftsmanship go hand in hand.

Our first aim is to produce guitars that excel in tone, projection, sustain, separation, clarity and harmonic richness. The second aim is to produce guitars that look as good as they sound.

In order to achieve this, every aspect of our guitars is hand-made by Luthier Matthias Roux and Designer Matthew Rice. From the hollow port magnetic bridges to the carved rosettes and individually voiced tops, from the carved braces, hand shaped necks and radiused backs, no CNC machines are used. The human hand and eye is ultimately capable of a far higher degree of accuracy and flow than any machine. It takes years to develop this capacity and many hours of practice. No machine can practice its art in this sense, so we believe in keeping them where they belong, In the factory, producing things by the batch. Looking at the details you will find some of our innovations. Our mitreless purflings along with our magnetic bridge system and hollow headstock are original Casimi inventions.

In nature, form follows function more perfectly than any man made creation. We hope to come a little closer to this great unison and hopefully contribute something of value to the guitar as an evolving instrument.
