Novacorda Guitars
Mete Cem Kuzu

Mete Cem is the travelling luthier. Every 3 to 5 years he moves to a different country due to his wife’s work. Having built his first commercial guitar in Ghana, West Africa without electricity he has a strong “form follows function” attitude, creating his own solutions and striving to use mostly local woods. His nightmare is to use off the shelf stuff. This attitude took him so far that he even had to produce his own bridge. Mostly electrics, ready for anything else, free from conventional thinking.

I happen to love guitars and making stuff, so it is a very logical outcome that I make them. The HGGS is probably the best place a builder can be right now. For a builder it is more than a 2-day trade fair but is a pleasant encounter with the community.
