About the Classical Guitar Compendium

Thank you for visiting the Classical Guitar Compendium!

The Classical Guitar Compendium is a unique online source of information about fine classical guitars and makers all over the world. The Classical Guitar Compendium's mission is to share with you useful information about guitar makers, their guitars, and their philosophy in the words of luthiers themselves.

The Classical Guitar Luthier Compendium project was launched within the former KS Classical Guitar Blog in 2013 by London-based guitarist Kazu Suwa. The increasing collection of unique interviews with guitar makers about the idea of a good sounding guitar, playability, finishing methods, woods, etc. are being translated into three languages, English, Spanish, and Japanese, capturing the imagination of guitar lovers across the world.

Each interview includes a link to the website of the guitar maker. Should you have any inquiries about the guitar or purchasing, please contact the guitar maker directly.
