Elia

... Das angemessene Klangvolumen und die gute Tragfähigkeit, die den modernen Anforderungen gewachsen sind, lassen dieses Instrument auch im Konzertsaal zuhause sein ...

Franz Holtmann (Akustik Gitarre 2/2011)

Translation of quote:

“... Ostensible fulfillment of a purpose is not what a instrument like Elia is about. Something higher, almost mystical comes into play which cannot be explained easily ...”

The entry into the professional upper class

Due to its abundance of registers this instrument will even challenge the most demanding guitarist. Elia´s adequately full bodied and well carrying sound meets modern requirements and makes the instrument at home in any concert hall.

This instrument is named after my first son.

Outfitted with tuners by Rubner, a matte lacquer finish and a simple appearance, this instrument is one of my reasonably priced models and is available from EUR 3,500.

After years of being a luthier it was finally time to develop my own designs from beginning to end. Elia 01 and Elia 02 are the first two prototypes from manufactured in the Zucali workshop.

Based on these two instruments I developed todays models Elia and Aline.
