Hi! My name is Alfonso and I am Italian maker and creator of electric basses and guitars. After studying with master lute makers and acquiring expertise in an international institute for violin making, followed by twenty years experience as a musician, I began to work with various types of wood, transforming them into musical instruments. My specialty is conceiving and designing, as well as actually producing and repairing stringed instruments of the highest quality, transforming them into veritable modern works of art.
My laboratory is located in Piana di Monte Verna, a charming little town just a few miles from Caserta. The area is well known for its beautiful countryside and verdant hills, pleasant life style, excellent food and generous hospitality. This village of just 2000 inhabitants is the perfect environment for crafting each individual instrument.
“A handcrafted instrument is the result of the work and patience of its maker a unique piece that tells its own story. Hands have shaped it, eyes have envisioned it, the heart and soul of its maker have conferred passion upon it. Each is different from the other. These are instruments that in no way can be considered as mass produced even when made using the same woods and the same parts” A. Camarota
