Noble woods, high-quality workmanship and attention to detail make every Cyan custom guitar a unique instrument with diverse sounds and best playability.

For 30 years, I have been a luthier of passion and develop and build custom made guitars of the highest quality. From the body, neck, the finish to the individual Cyan custom parts, I build every guitar in the finest craftsmanship.

Each instrument can be customized according to your wishes or developed together with you. You can choose between models with normal scale, baritone guitars for deeper tunings, 7-string or extended range guitars. I take my time and I am happy to advise you in detail by e-mail, phone or with a delicious cup of coffee at my Hamburg based workshop.

Versatile – 30th Anniversary Classic Edition

The modern T-Style custom made guitar

The Versatile is a modern vintage custom made guitar in T-style, which I designed for my company anniversary – according to the style of the house. This exquisite classic edition is a result of 30 years’ experience in custom guitar making and all my passion!

Finest combinations of wood – from swamp ash to khaya-mahogany to the classic alder body – take the twang back to stage in a modern interpretation. Ergonomic shapings and a screwed neck made of bird’s eye maple, give each instrument a special touch, while the scales of 25.6″ or 26.3″ offer the ideal solution for all tunings.

Optimal adjustment possibilities are obtained by a dual-action truss rod and the harmonic saddle bridge provides the perfect intonation. The attention to detail of this 30th Anniversary Classic Edition will make the heart of every T-style fan beat faster! The Versatile custom guitar is available in different nitro paint finishes and the pickups can be freely selected.
