iVee Guitars
Ivan Mulia

His love for the blues music and remarkable interest in the resonator guitar, especially the metal-body which is hard to find in his country, made Ivan Mulia start his own business in 2009.
His daily presence in an aluminium casting workshop for more than 10 years, has produced unusual techniques of guitar-making. One of the iVee’s unique qualities is floral etching on the whole body, which generally uses Indonesian traditions such as ‘batik’ and ‘songket’. Technical calculations blending with artistic culture is a hallmark of his work.

I appreciate the guitar as a sacred instrument and have no intention to produce it in mass quantities. iVee is a work produced in earnest. I want to participate in the HGGS to meet the great luthiers and humbly learn the art of making a guitar.
