Although born in Sweden, luthier Tobias Berg
has followed the craft of guitar making through Canada, England, and the US. He finally settled in Germany where he has been a full-time guitar builder for many years. His guitars are light in weight and are therefore very comfortable and fun to play. They have a beautiful, liquid quality to the tone, and are incredibly balanced. His cedar topped guitars have fantastic clarity, but still have a spectacular amount of added richness, derived from the stacked but controlled overtones. Along with a bold and unique appearance, Berg's guitars are very impressive overall, and we are excited to be representing this very talented luthier here at GSI.
This particular guitar (#80) features his latest double-sided construction method. Tobias has been perfecting this method in his own guitars for some time now, and we have been very pleased with several of these that have passed through here in recent months. To see more on the technique, see our blog post
for the full story. Materials on this guitar are gorgeous including a very rare set of exotic rosewood for the back and sides, with irregular and gorgeous grain patterns highlighted particularly in the back.
