A few notes on Jochen Röthel:


1969— Born in Kitzingen, Austria. Grandfather and Father were Cabinetmakers.
1990-1992— Apprenticed at Lakewood Guitars, Gießen, Germany, under Martin Seeliger, who had studied under Manfred Pletz.
1992— Completed the Master Guitarmaker course under José Romanillos in Cordoba, Spain.
1993-1996— Worked as a Guitarmaker at Lakewood Guitars, Gießen, Germany, with Michel Brück and other luthiers. Built approximately 4,000 guitars.
1996-1997— Earned a Meisterbrief in Lutherie at the Staatliche Geigenbauschule in Mittenwald, Germany.
1997-1998— Established his first workshop in Oldenburg, Germany.
2015— Moved his workshop to Würzburg, Germany.


Jochen builds approximately 10 guitars per year, and has made approximately 200 guitars to date.


This guitar is amazing. It looks fabulous and sounds divine. He’s an extraordinary luthier of fine, handcrafted guitars.
 

Our Christmas present to our son this year is a promise to pay his rent in 2020 while he works on his PhD. So this is up for sale to make sure that happens. Otherwise I’d keep it. 

GSI, his dealer in the USA, sells his new guitars at $14,000+.

Try finding a used one under $10,000!
