iVee Guitars
Ivan Mulia

His love of blues music and remarkable interest in the resonator guitar, especially the metal-body which is hard to find in his country, made Ivan Mulia start making his own in 2009.
His job in an aluminum casting workshop for more than 10 years produces unusual techniques of guitar-making.
One of the unique things about iVee guitars is floral etching on the whole body, which generally uses Indonesian traditions such as ‘batik’ and ‘songket’.
Technical calculations blended with artistic culture is a hallmark of his work.

I grew up in a viscous Indonesian culture, which will is my biggest influence when I work.
The HGGS is a perfect opportunity to appreciate each other and introduce Indonesia to the world.
Moreover I want to meet luthiers from all over the world from a variety of cultures.
