Giltzow Guitars

Michael Giltzow is a luthier in Boise Idaho who builds beautiful acoustic guitars. I am extremely fortunate to have Mike currently building a guitar for me. The guitar will be an OM size Lutz Spruce top with Koa sides and back. Many of the specs and measurements of the guitar will be similar to the Martin finger style guitar that I currently perform with but will include many personal touches unique to this instrument. In addition to selecting the wood sets, we've also chosen a variety of interesting pearl and abalone inlays that will make this a "one of a kind" instrument. The photos below show the guitar in various stages of production. Please visit Mike's website at for more information regarding these beautiful handmade instruments.
