Innovative, one of a kind and a bit at the dark side of the force….
…those are Tobias Traub’s handmade instruments built in his Custom Shop in the middle of Berlin, Germany.
His guitars are not only beautiful, versatile and responsive in sound but Tobias has also his own unique way to show that potential in each Instrument visually. He has developed his own techniques for his handmade marquetry and engravings, to include his love of art, sci-fi, wood cuts- and printing… and other awesomely weird stuff.
After all, music is life! And so is the guitar!
Innovative, one of a kind and a bit at the dark side of the force… I think those narratives describe my work pretty exactly; I think they’re even pretty on point for myself. In building guitars I found my way to express the person I am, to tell stories, to inspire other people and get inspired by the ideas and wishes of the customer or just to meditate. The Holy Grail Show represents all that. That’s why I’m here.
