Product Range and Service

Acoustic Guitars - Classical Guitars and Steel-string Guitars, Luthier Guitars, sheet music and accessories.

For decades "Die Zupfgeige" has been a name for quality and a sustainable range of classical and acoustic guitars. We stock a wide choice of classical and acoustic guitars, from instruments for the beginner up to fine handmade luthier-guitars for professionals. Our classical guitars are made by small Spanish factories using traditional craftmanship.

The single handcrafted fine classical guitars are made by famous but also by talented young guitar-makers.

We try to find steel-string guitars outside the mainstream.

In our own guitar-workshop all kinds of repair-services are performed. All our instruments are checked and adjusted prior to sale and we try to realize special customer preferences.


The guitar-maker Rolf Eichinger founded "Die Zupfgeige" in Karlsruhe at the end of the Seventies. Rolf Eichinger was tought guitar-making in Spain by Antonio Marin Montero and Manuel Lopez Bellido and showed Matthias Adler how to make guitars. Since 1991 Matthias Adler has been the owner of the company.
