Greetings from Poznan, Poland

Post by wmkone » Sun Sep 10, 2017 5:55 pm

Hi, just another classical guitar enthusiast joins the group :D I am playing the instrument (as hobby) almost all my life (for short periods) with (many long) breaks. I love the sound, simplicity and capabilities of the classical guitar. I am looking for inspiration and help in further development.

Welcome!

I recently became familiar with Poznan while searching family geneology records from Klecko.

Glad you joined Delcamp.

Thank you!

Although, I never visited Klecko I know it is in the neighbourhood. My family also comes from this region (near Gniezno).

I am looking forward to be part of the community.

Welcome ! it is a pleasure to see another person from home; just two days ago I was close to Poznań - namely in Swarzędz visiting a Friend who just built a very nice guitar of maple and spruce. It sounds promising and we wonder how it will sound when it will open.

And may I ask: what guitar/guitars do you play ? I am interesting in classical guitars and relation between materials, type of construction and sound characteristics.

With my best

Hello Jacek!

Its great to hear about nearby community. I have to admit that building a guitar (actually any instrument) is like magic to me...

Currently, I play an old Esteve 1.4ST. Up to now it was sufficient for my erratic approach. Recently, I become more consistent and started to look around for a new instrument. This is one of many reasons why I am here.

Best,

Wojtek

Hi, Wojtku,

I am enclosing links to threads on this newly build guitar at Polish luthier's forum, maybe it will be of an interest to you.

Yes it is quite difficult to find a decent classical guitar at home and prices are, hm, speccial; it was not so easy for me to acquire my Picado - the story is here:
viewtopic.php?f=107&t=100300

I hope to be in the area of Poznan again in the future, it would be nice to organize a kind of meeting

With my best thoughts and wishes
pozdrawiam serdecznie

Thank you for the links Jacek! The guitar looks beautiful and your story about Picado - excellent. I had the impression that luthier guitars are extremely expensive (mainly designed for professionals). Do you know what price range would be for such instrument like shown on the luthier forum?

It would be great to get in touch when you will be around.

Yes Wojtku, one of common beliefs at home is that luthier's built guitars cost a fortune...please, make the comparison with the world outside to see that it is not so bad... it is possible to find really nice instrument for ca 2000 Euro and if used - for much less.

The instrument presented at this Polish luthiers forum - sorry, I have no idea about the eventual price; I will pass your question to the builder/constructor of this guitar.

If you feel like being in touch with me I would suggest to begin email contacts: send me a private message if you would like my email address.

As always

Jacek

EDIT

Soon I'll give you contact data to the constructor of this guitar.

PM sent.

Indeed, Łukasz Kuropaczewski teaches at the local academy of music. It is a shame, I never had a chance to listen to his live performance. I will need to grab one of his cds, because not much can be found on the tidal.
