Walter Verreydt (Belgium) made his first instruments in 1985. As a teacher wood working and a music lover it was a logical step to the interest in the construction of musical instruments
His passion for the sound of the classical guitar drove him to guitar making.
From the start Walter had the opportunity to study the work of renowned guitar makers as Bouchet, Fleta, Hernandez-Aguado, and others. He also had good contacts with eminent guitar makers as Daniel Friedrich and José Romanillos. This was a rich source of information. In Granada he got acquainted with the elegant and refined South Spanish guitar making tradition.
Since 1988 Walter teaches Classical guitar making at the Centrum voor Muziekinstrumentenbouw in Puurs (Belgium). Next to the necessary basics he tries to bring his students to affinity for the instrument and the craftsmanship
