Burgun guitares
Simon Burgun

Simon Burgun is a graduate of the CMB Puurs in Belgium where he’s been awarded the “Golden Plane”. He currently works in Strasbourg, at the French-German border and dedicates his time to the making of romantic and classical guitars, both based on historical and personal patterns. He produces 4 new instruments per year and also does restoration work on antique guitars. At previous editions of the HGGS, you may have seen him in charge of the Book Club table or talking about the Leonardo Guitar Research Project.

After only 3 high-level editions, the HGGS has proven its status as a major show for independent guitar builders. It’s a true paradise for guitar players but also an opportunity for us luthiers to exchange information. I try to bring a gentle 19th century touch to this steel-string world.
