  • Comments:

    Leszek Jerzy Gajdzik's luthery began with violin-making. But also from his career technical background in medical research, he brings a very precise, logical and technical approach to his guitar-making. Gajdzik guitars are double-top contruction using a Nomex layer in between layers of spruce. The sides are quite traditional and the back has braces as traditional build but with more pronounced arching and body taper combining with a slightly elevated fingerboard. As with Dammann and Gernot Wagner Nomex double-top guitars, Gajdzik instruments have impressive power and projection. At the same time they have strongly traditional, beautiful spruce sounds, really good clarity and a wide range of colour. Unlike many guitars designed to be powerful, it responds really well to being played gently and sentitively as well. The standard of construction is very high and with well-adjusted intonation. Comfort and playability is also very good. Without doubt, we are seriously impressed with these instruments and expect many profesional players to be struck by the combination of power, clarity and beauty of sound.
