Rafal Turkowiak
Poland

Almost thirty-five years of experience and experiments in guitar making have resulted in a successful solution for the guitar neck. The world patented innovation (European Patent Office EP 3340231) ‘Acoustic Tubes’ inside the guitar neck is Rafal’s greatest achievement. The musician hears sound not only from the guitar body but also from the guitar neck. The sound is richer, sustained longer and the neck much stiffer. Rafal is also the inventor of the world’s first ‘bridge with drilled holes’, top with ‘WAVE’ type resonator and back & sides made at ‘High-Tech Press’. Thanks to noble/rich and selective sounds this luthier’s work is called ‘the Queen of Guitars’.

I’ve been creating guitars since 1986 and my first guitar was a failure. Many years of research since then have resulted in numerous innovations and the world patent ‘Acoustic Tubes’ is what I would like to present at the HGGS 2020. Sound comes not only from the guitar body but also from the guitar neck.
