    Hello,

    my name is Alexander Claas, I am a luthier from Germany and I want to present you my guitars. I am always interested in new, experimental ideas and hope you like my instruments. Maybe you would like to give me some feedback about my work.

    Right now I am building a guitar for "Kayzer" (member of this forum), so I will add new pictures of guitars and basses I build in this thread.

    By the way: the orange one is for sale for 1000€ (1.320 Dollars), if you are interested in it, just write me a message or an e-mail.

    best regards,
    Alexander Claas - Claas Guitars

    Welcome to the forum. Those guitars look great. I'm a huge fan of these odd/offset headless shapes and it's good to see more on the market.

    Is the part with the fine tuners from ABM? I seem to recall seeing a design similar to that from them.

    Just as an FYI, we have a section specifically for Dealers/Builders who are sell products. Posts like these need to go there.

    The hardware is made by ETS. A german hardware custom shop, which also builds for a lot of national and international guitar makers. But they build only for official brands.

    I already expected something like this, I was a bit confused, when I looked for the right section to post this. Maybe an admin can put this thread in the right section?

    Claas? Like the manufacturer of large agricultural machines?

    The guitars look great, and I love the ETS stuff Or at least the look of it, I never tried anything with ETS hardware.

    Unfortunately not related. Then I would come into a big inheritance.

    That shape would make for a fantastic headless 8-string for sure. :) Welcome to the forum! :wavey:

    Interesting design. Good luck :)

    You have a RSS feed setup on this forum to call dibs on the first available slots from any luthier posting news or what ? :D

    I'm currently living in Hildesheim, good to see that there is a Luthier close by. Very cool looking design and the specs of the neck are crazy.

    My Father lives, since I was a child in Hildesheim, so I am sometimes there. So if you want to test one of my guitars, I can message you, when I am there next time.

    Very interesting and unique design. I would love to see some 7-string designs in the near future!
