Grellier Guitars
Christophe Grellier

When Christophe Grellier was a child, he always wanted to learn how things worked, disassembling his walkman to “repair” it, which was unsuccessful most of the time. Several years later, when he was a teenager, he started to play guitar and logically started to tweak the instruments. So becoming a guitar maker seemed an obvious career choice. Buying repurposed wood and a couple of books, he started his apprenticeship by building electric guitars, and switched rapidly to flattops. He became a fulltime professional luthier in 2000. Since then, he built more than 80 guitars, mainly acoustics, and especially archtop guitars.
