Jochen Rothel

Born in 1969 in Kitzingen, a small town in northern Bavaria. A family tradition of cabinet making from Grandfather to Father and now as a son of a cabinetmaker, woodworking has always been familiar to me.

In my teenage years I combined my interest in music and guitar playing and with my talent for manual skills had the idea of becoming a guitar maker. So in 1990 I started a 3 years apprenticeship at Lakewood Guitars – a guitar workshop where Martin Seeliger and his crew are building steel string acoustic guitars.

In 1992 I participated in the guitar making course of Jose Romanillos in Cordoba/ Spain. With pleasure I remember the warm hearted, friendly and open minded atmosphere created by Jose and Marian Romanillos during the wonderful guitar festival. And it was there that I decided to specialize in classical guitars.
