Welcome at Heiner Dreizehnter Gitarrenbau

I started building instruments to suit my own style and musical tastes, after many years of playing music. This is how my large-body irish bouzouki came about, and also different sized acoustic guitars suitable for finger-picking or for fuller, louder accompaniment. I later added special design instruments to the line, like for example the acoustic bass.
All my instruments are made from solid wood. My choice of wood for each individual instrument depends largely on the customers sound requirements and preferences, and of course the instruments can be fitted with a built-in pickup if so required. As well as making instruments, I also carry out repairs.
