Novacorda Guitars
Mete Cem Kuzu

Mete Cem is the travelling luthier. Every 3 to 5 years he moves to a different country due to his wife’s work. Having built his first commercial guitar in Ghana, West Africa without electricity he has a strong “form follows function” attitude, creating his own solutions and striving to use mostly local woods. His nightmare is to use off the shelf stuff. This attitude took him so far that he even had to produce his own bridge. Mostly electrics, ready for anything else, free from conventional thinking.

The HGGS is the ultimate guitar exhibition in Europe with a great visitor profile who is looking for beauty in details. This alone makes it worth taking place. Add a number of great builders into this picture and there you go; you’ve got a masterpiece in every sense!
