Jeff Traugott Guitars

Californian Jeff Traugott is a legend in modern guitar making, I am honoured to represent him in the UK. Everywhere you ask who are the very best of luthiers working today Jeff's name comes up.

"Traugott guitars with their classic lines and natural elegance, are designed as the perfect complement to musicians’ needs. They uniquely express his desire to attain the highest standards in his art. He makes steel-string, flat top acoustic guitars including fan fret and multi-string models, solid body electric guitars and hollow body acoustic-electric guitars."

    Legendary Luthiers Five: Jeff Traugott 15 October 2016



    This was another huge success. Many thanks to Jeff for a fantastic day and a very interesting talk.

    This will be the fifth legendary Luthiers event. Previous events with Ervin Somogyi, Linda Manzer, Ray Kraut and Grit Laskin were a great success.

    Jeff will be bringing the next TAMCO guitar, specs still to be decided, let me know if you have any ideas. He is keen to discuss your requirements and take orders.


    It will follow the usual pattern, open house in my shop on the Saturday until six, talk at six, ticket holders only, then food at Bom Bane's at around eight. There are only twenty tickets available.

    The Koa BK is Jeff's signature model and now I know why. This is a truly outstanding guitar.

    From the deep, luscious basses through the complex and warm mids to the clear and bell-like trebles the definition and projection is exactly the same. I have never before had such a well balanced guitar.

    It's hard to know what to say about such an incredible instrument... The bass notes are immense and well defined. The mids have a depth and complexity that is rarely heard. The trebles are fat and full with great clarity and definition.

    Reputations like Jeff's take many years to establish and total dedication to maintain, craftsmanship at this level is an honour to witness.

    There are many reasons why Jeff has had such a reputation for many decades, this is now one of them.

    It is hard to describe tone at the best of times but at this level it becomes almost impossible. Suffice to say that it is truly incredible, combing qualities that might be thought mutually exclusive, for instance resonance and clarity, depth and definition and subtlety and projection, you get them all in this remarkable guitar! The tone and responsiveness and are what made the Traugott legend.

    I was very happy to visit Jeff Traugott's workshop after the 2013 Healdsburg Guitar Festival. The photo of the 'The Tree' mahogany is the set going to be used for the TAMCO guitar.
