Herbst Guitar Technologies Guitars are crafted from the highest quality tonewoods. Where possible we use timber from sustainable sources, grown in managed forests in Europe. Exotic tonewoods and timbers from North America are also available on request.

All guitars are constructed with a through-neck for its superior sustain and ergonomic qualities.

For a minimal environmental impact we finish our guitars with water based lacquers or oil/wax finishes but alternative finishes are also available.

All instruments are custom built. Therefore, the customer can specify timber, neck dimensions, pick-up and hardware choices differing from the standard models during the ordering process.

Electric Guitars start from £1200.
