Mikaël Springer is a yound french guitar builder who operates under the brand Springer Guitars. His workshop is located in a small village in the Lorraine County in France, near the German and Luxembourgish border. There he builds electric guitars by hand, starting from the first design step together with the player to the final setup. The final instrument therefore is nothing less than the result of an intense and permanent dialogue between the luthier and the musician.
In order to provide the best possible quality in electric lutherie, he pays particular attention to select only the best available materials. He only uses extremely reliable hardware and electronic components, pickups from the best manufacturers, and last but not least handpicked and seasoned tonewoods.
Currently he offers 2 design shapes, the Seraph and the Infinity models. Both designs are meant to be customized and adapted to the player's needs and taste. Thus different tonewoods, hardware components, pickups, controls layout, colours, etc. can be combined, making each guitar a unique masterpiece.
