How these hand-crafted guitars are made

The Dr Peppler range of classical guitars are hand-crafted by experienced luthiers in the Aiersi workshop in Nantong, China. Small teams of craftsmen work on each guitar using traditional methods rather than machine tools. The concert grade guitar is made by a small team of experienced luthiers under the direct supervision of China’s leading master luthier, Yulong Gou, and bear his signature, date, and production number.
