R.I.P. Fritz Ober (1955 – 2020)

We are extremely saddened to hear that Munich guitar-maker Fritz Ober passed away after a period of illness. He was not just one of the finest luthiers of our generation but also a warm-hearted, reliable friend. I feel honoured to have visited him many times to collect his wonderful instruments and to have enjoyed his company over many a lunch or evening meal. The world needs more people like Fritz … a friendly, generous and caring human being.


  • As you know, he was a tall, masculine man but with a smile and a warmth of personality that was very endearing. I am very upset about his passing and that there was no chance to say Thank you and Goodbye.
