Christian Jablonski has been a master-luthier for 20 years now, living in Bad Goisern, Austria and teaching guitar building at the nearby HTBLA Hallstatt. Outside of his busy, teaching schedule, he constructs wonderful guitars in his workshop. As time is somewhat, limited, the output is small and most instruments are made-to-order. As a journeyman, he worked for the biggest manufacturer of steel-string guitars in Germany, & was later responsible for the repair-shop in a big store. He has seen, made and repaired a lot of guitars. Now he is happy in his small shop, making excellent guitars and the occasional repair.
I am a guitarmaker because I love to be surrounded by guitars. I love this so much, that I became a teacher for guitarmaking now as well. There should be more exchange of ideas among instrument makers and I think the EGB/Holy Grail Guitar Show is great for that!
