Jérémie Geffroy’s workshop is in Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys in the Morbihan region (Brittany)
After his training in Guitar Lutherie at the ITEMM (European Technological Institute for Musical Professions) he worked with experienced luthiers such as as Francois Vendramini, Benoit de Bretagne, Fred Pons (Kopo Lutherie) and Serge Michel (Tao Guitar).
The craftsmanship is excellent, and its refined aesthetics shows as much in the details (purflings, headstock veneers, Breton-inspired rosette, etc.) as in the whole. The tonewoods (at least 8-year seasoning time) are top quality like the magnificent ziricote for the back and the sides.
Soundwise, this instrument manages to combine modern features such as a double top with all the qualities of a more traditional construction.
This model was tested in the issue n°76 (March 2017) of Guitare Magazine and the last words in their article offer an apt summary of this guitar’s characteristics: “we fell in love with this guitar’s craftsmanship, its stunning look, its easy playability, its expressive possibilities (timbre as well as dynamic range) and the delight it brings to the player.”
