Hi - wondered if I could canvass opinions on the best luthiers in South Africa, across different types of guitar.
I am new here and only know of Maingard and Casimi for steel string and van den Berg for classical. Also heard of the Stellenbosch Guitar Co. but don't know their reputation. Casimi guitars are selling from time to time at a dealer in London (UK) for eye-watering prices (well over R200,000), which puts them up against the world's very best. Are they that good ?!? Never tried one.
Would be really interested in your knowledge and opinions.
Without a doubt, Casimi compete with the best guitars in the world.
