IDEOLOGY OF OUR PRODUCTS

Zaletelj guitars are hand-made by the luthier Luka Zaletelj. They are made from the highest quality materials using our rich knowledge of traditional production techniques coupled with a hint of modern design.

 

”For us, a guitar is never just an instrument. We make musical instruments with an ear for the individual in order for it to become part of the guitarist’s own character. ”

TRADITION OF PERFECTION
