Thank you for visiting the Classical Guitar Compendium!
My name is Kazu Suwa. I am a classical guitarist and the editor/owner of the Classical Guitar Compendium.
I launched this Classical Guitar Compendium project in 2013 in order to provide useful information to those who are in search of ideal guitars, at the same time, to raise awareness about the world of handmade guitars and luthiers for those who are new to this fascinating world.
I am conducting interviews with high-quality guitar makers all over the world asking their philosophy of making guitars with good sound quality and playability including the design, finishing methods and materials.
I hope this website serves as a useful source of information and inspiration for all guitar lovers from players to knowledgeable collectors or luthiers so that all of us can benefit from this beautiful tradition.
Feedback is always welcome, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or contact me using the contact form.
Also, please visit Kazu Suwa Classical Guitar website where you can find my recordings and essays about music!
