Steve Fischer Guitars

Steve Fischer Guitars

I am delighted to be working with Steve Fischer. TAMCO's first guitar will be a cutaway 12/15 (12 frets to the body, 15" lower bout) in Lutz spruce and mahogany with snakewood binding and rosette. Due around June this year.

Here's what Steve says.

My Mission Is to create instruments that allow the musician to create music without restriction, to create instruments that inspire the musician to create music above and beyond what they thought possible.

If I have done my job right the guitar will disappear in the hands of the player. What I mean by this is that the music will be able to flow freely without obstruction, without the musician ever having to say, "if only this guitar had a little more of this or that" or, "if only this guitar were easier to play." If the guitar gets in the way of the music, I have failed. If the player sits down and plays and loses all track of time and space and just plays music, then I have succeeded. If the tone of the instrument inspires musicians to create, then I have achieved my mission.

The Craftsman. What you are looking at is the culmination of ten years as a professional guitar maker. From my beginning education at Bryan Galloupís school of lutherie where I was introduced to the art of guitar making and seeing for the first time the potential of what a guitar can be; to my time building guitars for McPherson where I honed my attention to detail in every stage of the building process; to my time designing the acoustic line of guitars for PRS where I got to really consider every part of the guitar down to the last detail; to now where I am very pleased to launch Steve Fischer Guitars. I feel I am now building the finest instruments I have ever made, both in tone as well as the aesthetic beauty of the guitar. My hope is that my guitars will inspire musicians to make the music they have always wanted to make, and that you will enjoy playing the guitars as much as I enjoy making them.

    This 12/15 - twelve frets to the body and a 15 inch lower bout - is another fantastic guitar from Steve. The body join at the twelfth fret gives a very full and rich tone due to the changed position of the bridge and the cutaway gives access all the way up.

    The result is a warm tone with great balance and the superb definition of Adirondack, deep/well defined bass, complex mids and clear, ringing trebles.

  3. Fischer 12/15 - Lutz Spruce & Honduran Mahogany

    Fischer 12/15 - Lutz Spruce & Honduran Mahogany

    Out of stock
    My first from Steve and it exceeds my very high expectations. With the clarity and definition of mahogany and the warmth of the twelve fret body join (due to moving the bridge towards the centre of the lower bout) it it has both sweetness of tone and great projection. A very versatile and expressive guitar with fantastic playability.
