Rasmussen Guitars
Lars Rasmussen

Lars Rasmussen is a luthier based in Stockholm, Sweden. He builds mainly steel string guitars and tenor guitars, with a focus on responsive and dynamic tone. Lars undertook his lutherie training in Sweden, but has also been a student of masters Dana Bourgeois and Ervin Somogyi. Over the last ten years, he has built instruments for many of Swedens finest mucisians.

I am deeply honored to be invited to the show this year. Its the worlds premier event for handmade guitars, and a rare opportunity to meet and greet with so many luthiers at the same time. Last year was amazing, and I expect no less of this year!

I started out building guitars about ten years ago. It is the passion of my life and I cant imagine life without it. I love every aspect of the guitar, the hand craft itself of course – but mostly I enjoy the interaction with the person who is getting the guitar. Knowing that when my work has ended, the guitar lives on and continues to inspire the guitar player year after year. Seeing the guitar when it stops by the shop or at a concert, after years and years of playing, is the biggest reward of all in craft.
