My name is Paolo Sussone and I’m a guitar maker living in Genoa, Italy.
I started some years ago driven by my passion for guitars, and I found my passion for working with wood.
My instruments are built to suit the customer’s preferences and needs, thus helping musicians to find the best solution for their sound and their personal best idea of the guitar.
In other words, we build the Guitar together.
My guitars are built using only the finest materials. The quarter-sawn silky soundboards and the rich Indian rosewood backs and sides are carefully chosen for their acoustic properties and visual beauty. In the small details such as the rosette, abalone shell and mother of pearl is hand-matched for color and pattern.
From the Italian Alpine spruce top with its brightness and clarity to the cedar top with its responsiveness and warmth, each soundboard is worked to bring out its full acoustic potential. Whether you choose the elegant “standard” guitar or you want to adorn the instrument with options (cutaway, figurated woods, special inlays), each instrument is set up for your optimal string action and neck adjustment before it leaves my workshop.
Guitar CraftworkI build Classical and Steel Strings guitars.
My choice is first quality Italian “Val di Fiemme” spruce for the top, which I usually buy in Paneveggio’s Forest, and tropical aged woods for back and side, chose accoriding to musician’s needs.
