Sold Make an enquiry


The godfather of luthier-built instruments in South Africa, Marc has trained some incredible builders including the now world-renowned Casimi team Matthias and Matthew. Marc builds guitars that truly will take your breath away aesthetically and sonically, making every piece of wood he uses sing to its absolute full potential. 

It's rare that we are speechless here at The North American Guitar, but this GC model has certainly stopped us in our tracks. It is an absolutely superb instrument with a sweet voice that rings like a church bell, and has a beautifully balanced and yet powerful mid and low end. It's very versatile in its capabilities, pretty much taking anything you can throw at it. But without a doubt, it excels in drop tunings such as DADGAD.
