The Raymond Kraut 00 is an embodiment of Raymond’s core beliefs and ideals as a master luthier. Truly a unique instrument in tone and visual aesthetics, this 00 is built from the bottom up with the sole intent of inspiring musicality. Designed as a “single unified aesthetic entity”, Kraut prides his builds on their dynamics, and optimal responsiveness, creating a tone and feeling that provides a player with an instinctual and expressive playing experience.

The Swiss Moon Spruce top paired with its Figured European Maple back and sides lend themselves perfectly to the tonal palette Kraut’s builds are known for, creating balance and bass response with articulation and sensitivity. Paired with its ornate geometric inlays, meticulously crafted from a custom combination of Spalted Maple, Ebony, Buckeye Burl, Crushed Sunflower Seeds, and Turquoise material, this Raymond Kraut 00 is a prime example of Kraut’s masterful craftsmanship and is undeniably one of a kind.
