Urs Kuratle

Saitenkraft is located in Switzerland and builds guitars by hand. The main aim of Saitenkraft is to build the individual dream instrument for each musician. Each guitar is one of a kind. The first draft of the JK was designed and built in 2004.
Today the JK MK II and JB MK II are the flagship models of Saitenkraft. The custom shapes are the pride of the company, it was a long journey to develop them and to drive progress. Urs stopped using tropical timber and uses exclusively swiss regional wood. Experimenting with materials is an integral part of Saitenkraft.

The Holy Grail Guitar Show is arguably the most important show in Europe. Urs has set himself the goal to participate in this show, to promote Saitenkraft beyond the country’s borders.
