STROMBERG GUITARS

1906 gründete Charles Stromberg und sein Sohn, Harry, in Boston, die nach ihm benannte Manufaktur. 1910 schloss sich sein Sohn Elmer dem Familienbetrieb an. Elmer Stromberg war es auch, der die legendären Arch Tops, die zu den besten Instrumenten aller Zeiten gezählt werden müssen, gebaut hat. Der Ruf der STROMBERG Gitarren ist hauptsächlich auf die 16, 17 und 18“ großen Arch Tops zurückzuführen, die erstmals gegen Ende der 30er Jahre, während der Blütezeit der Bigband-Ära, eingesetzt wurden. Kurz vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg baute man bei STROMBERG die ersten Arch Tops mit Cutaway. 1955 verstarben Charles und Elmer Stromberg. Wie bei vielen anderen kleineren Manufakturen auch, fanden sich keine geeigneten Nachfolger.

Ein kleines Team hochqualifizierter Gitarrenbauer, hat das Vermächtnis der STROMBERG Familie wieder zum Leben erweckt. Mit einer kleinen Mannschaft werden die legendären STROMBERG Gitarren in kleinen Stückzahlen wieder neu aufgelegt. Dabei werden die überlieferten Techniken, mit den neuesten CNC Maschinen behutsam verknüpft. Das Ergebnis, sind Instrumente, die auch den höchsten Ansprüchen genügen. Ein dünn aufgetragener Nitrocelluloselack und ein dezentes Relic Finish, machen jede STROMBERG Gitarre zu einem Einzelstück, das so individuell ist wie sein Besitzer.

After nearly a decade of study and design, Stromberg guitars are now being built again.

Established in 1905, Stromberg guitars are known around the world as premier archtop guitars with a reputation for sound and playability. Designed and built to excel in the big band jazz setting, Stromberg guitars have always been known for their high quality construction and the ability to “cut through the mix”. Today’s Stromberg guitars continue that tradition and stay true to the legacy of this iconic brand.

Manufactured in Europe to the highest standards of workmanship, materials and quality, each Stromberg is built by combining the advances in guitar production technology and the long practiced traditional handcraftsmanship of some of Europe’s leading builders. At Stromberg, we provide the working musician with top quality instruments that exemplify the history of Stromberg and connect to their legacy in jazz and contemporary music.
