The Maestro Story


About Maestro

Started in 2004 with the vision of offering value-for-money instruments, Maestro Guitars evolved into one of the leading makers of premium guitars and ukuleles in the world. The once small dream of having his own guitar brand birthed Hozen’s lifelong commitment of making finely handmade instruments more accessible. Our story of resilience, dedication, and passion may serve as an inspiration for others to find their purpose and chase after their dream.

Founder's Message

 My name is Hozen and I am a luthier developing my own line of guitars under the Maestro Brand for the past 12 years and everyday is a new challenge in learning the ropes of the trade and improving product quality as well as consistency. The past 12 years had been full of ups and downs; looking back I am determine to learn from he past mistakes and push the company forward with an ever progressive mindset. My current batch of instruments is all about achieving the balanced lush tone, buttery smooth playability and responsiveness.

Each Maestro Guitar is crafted and constructed by our small team of luthiers with a combined 100 over years of experience. We incorporate many of the latest techniques and proprietary design features such as Soundport, Carbon-Fiber reinforced necks while still being handcrafted in the time honored tradition of the master guitar makers of generations past. It is my philosophy that a truly extraordinary instrument is the result of the meticulous selection of the finest woods, materials and careful construction; along with a clear vision of the end result and a consistency of skills and techniques throughout.

When we describe our instruments as being 'handcrafted', we mean this wherebt the process of building individually tailored instruments, demands and emphasize the skillful use of traditional hand tools. Braces are shaped and plates voiced using knives, gouges and chisels. Fingerboards are leveled with hand planes. Necks are individually carved using spoke shaves, rasps, files, scrapers and lots of hand sanding. This old world approach and many of our design and bracing ideas takes time, we chose to limit our annual production and concentrate on making instruments we are best capable of: Acoustic, Classical andd Ukulele

I sincerely invite you to try out our new range of Maestro Private Collection and enter into our realm of great sounding guitars and ukuleles
