Johannes Kitseli’s workshop is located in Ängelsberg, 150 km northwest of Stockholm in Sweden.
He started building his first guitar in 1984 and then professionally in 2007. In the same year he met the Greek guitar builder Giannis Paleodimopoulos where he visited his workshop regularly and was inspired by his building philosophy and construction techniques. Johannes experimented a lot in the coming years with the modern guitar, but with a focus on the traditional sound.
