Artistic Guitars is proud to be working with Frank Hartung Guitars from the green heart of Germany . He is a luthier with passion, having apprenticed as a carpenter. A long time guitar builder, Frank has been an innovator. He designs modern guitars with exciting shapes and logical lines - the Embrace, Enigma and Diavolo Designs.
Exceptional tone wood is the major component of his instruments. His exclusive FLOW CARVING design is absolutely unique in the world of guitars. The contour lines run fluently into the surface and add a 3-dimensional effect to the overall appearance. Frank’s end-closed fingerboards receive a compound radius for better playability. A unique truss rod design enhances the tone and enables a truly unique headstock. The neck is massively connected to the body using a custom approach allowing the best tone transmission. Special attention is placed on the The Tune-O-Matic bridge, mounted countersunk into the carved top, providing better resonance characteristics thanks to a smaller distance between strings and body. The strings run from the back through the body and continue to the bridge through specially made stainless steel inserts on the front. Edges are rounded for smooth string guidance and a perfect transmission of vibration.
Beauty and Enhanced Tone - There is a difference !
