Lisa Weinzierl‘s instruments are characterised by clear aesthetic elements, the use of carefully chosen materials and fascinating craft techniques, including the meticulous French polish. She believes a perfect setup and functionality is of utmost importance to the instrument‘s completion, giving musicians both freedom and reliability.
Her work is deeply inspired by the study of exceptional classical guitars. As the only restorer at Siccas Guitars, she had access to a large number of the world‘s best instruments. Throughout her making process, she continually refines her ideas, drawing on this valuable knowledge.
Lisa‘s craft skills are certified by the prestigious German Crafts Master Certificate (Meisterbrief). She has been honored with a Gold Medal and the Master Crafts Award of the Bavarian state government.
After initial training at the well-known Instrument Making School in Mittenwald, she further developed her skills through intensive research and work experience with renowned luthiers such as Gernot Wagner, Andreas Kirschner, Gert Esmyol, Peter Ziegler, Christopher Schuetz and Leo Sprenger.
Prior to establishing her workshop in Bavaria (Germany), Lisa worked with the renowned London-based instrument and bow makers at the W.E.Hill and Sons workshop under the direction of Stefan-Peter Greiner and Robert Brewer Young.
