Rozawood / ARTCRAFT / 2018 / Nitrocellulose Lacquer / Guitar For Sale
We call this lady „Guitar Futurama“. She offers everything you can imagine on the modern guitar. Special moulded frets supplied by Swedish company TRUE TEMPERAMENT enable unbelievable „in pitch“ playing all around the fretboard, while Spruce and Koa used for the body and Red Cedar for the neck provide incredibly clear sound projection. Just beyond belief.
The design is also really outstanding – our special Convex Sound Hole Rim with two asymmetrical pearl rings around, specially stained Bearclaw Alpine Spruce top surrounded by Abalone Mother of Pearl trim with the bevelled armrest. And antique „shade-burst“ toner for the top and also for figured Koa back and sides combines luxury with elegance. This lady is really THE QUEEN among guitars …

ROZAWOOD, a.s., Czech Republic
The ROZAWOOD workshop is the vision of luthier Roman Zajíček, who is known as one of the finest guitar makers in Europe.
Many European players and guitar sellers consider Roman among the “top 5” guitar makers worldwide. His instruments are known for their impressive tone and impeccable workmanship.
Roman, engineer of profession, loves music above all. His quest for beauty of acoustic tone led him to building instruments himself.
Roman built his first instruments in 1979. His reputation of a man with deep sensitivity for wood and tone began to spread among high-end instrument lovers with every guitar he created. ROZAWOOD was born and after some time, when Roman built guitars all by himself, his activities outgrew him. In 2003 Roman found a partner to finance and manage his ongoing activities and the new ROZAWOOD workshop was established.
Roman is part of the impressive history of Bohemian instrument making, which is considered to be the longest in the world. A nice exampleis C.F. Martin who originates from the town Markneukirchen, not so far from where Roman lives and works. This region is still the cradle of many high-end instrument makers, mostly working in small shops. Although the professionally marketed American luthiers are better known, some of these Bohemian luthiers are impressive instrument makers equal and sometimes better craftsmen than their American colleagues. Roman’s knowledge of traditional violin construction combined with his technical insight and experience as guitar maker made him one of the finest luthiers of Europe. His unique construction design resulted over the years in a wide range of fine high-end acoustic instruments of highest quality and impressive acoustic sound.
All our production, made from special selected solid tonewoods and other top quality materials only, is purely handmade in any detail. Even today very rare handcut pearl inlays are standard in our workshop. We use tap-tuning for every our instrument as a standard too – every top is tuned by tapping on and subsequent corresponding adjustment.
Every instrument is during all building process checked by Roman personally (if even is not built whole by Roman only) and for quality confirmation is signed by Roman after all.
ROZAWOOD is not a factory or a manufacture, but an art workshop where only skilled and trained luthiers put their best efforts into every unique ROZAWOOD instrument …
Roman is a member of the Guild of Prague Luthiers.
