Gabriele Lodi grew up in the lutherie workshop founded in the early 70s by his father Maurizio and his uncle Leandro. From a very young
age he began to assist his father. The activity was shared between the construction of new guitars and the restoration of instruments built by the greatest names in the history of lutherie.
Gabriele Lodi has immersed himself in this history and the meaning that can be given to each of these epochs and their evolution, both culturally and musically. With this knowledge and experience

in Madrid and Barcelona, making modifications to keep the trace of this tradition in our modernity.

For Gabriele Lodi it represents "a meeting point between the construction of ancient instruments (the combination of spruce and maple has been the most common configuration for stringed instruments) and the innovations made from the first Torres". The luthiery, the aesthetics and the choice of woods are breathtaking in their beauty and perfection. In terms of sound, it is an instrument that combines the power and presence of modern instruments with the musicality and qualities of timbre and expressiveness inherited from the Spanish tradition.
