The idea of creating this luthier guitar model had been progressively growing in Nikolo Kotzev’s mind over the years. His great musical experience, his touring, his gigs and concerts slowly helped him refine all the details he needed. When I met Nikolo, The Wiseman was already a concept in his mind and he knew exactly what he wanted.
This guitar represents the result of the collaboration between me and Nikolo Kotzev. We invested a huge amount of time discussing the design, materials, construction options, colours and hardware – and this investment has paid back!
Ladies and gentlemen, here it is – The Wiseman!
