PP-guitars started as a hobby creating the guitar I never found (or could afford).
I’m a freelance Illustrator, and has often “designed” my own guitar. As an active musician i have played a number of well known brands, but there has always been “something wrong” and modifications had to be done.
I started sketching and drawing on my computer, bought a lot of books, bought special tools and a lot of expensive hardwood....and began building, and learning.....patience! My son Kim Lykke Pedersen has joined me in the workshop, adding a custom-built CNC router. He is a toolmaker and 3D artist.
This gives us a possibility to take our products to a very accurate and high standard. Now we start a new design with a 3D render, which we refine until the perfect “look” is achieved. There is a big pleasure of combining fine hardwoods into a new design, adding quality hardware, and go playing Rock´n´roll.
