holistic aesthetics

Handcrafted with precision

Avant-garde construction

Made by the passion for music, craftmanship and design.

Inspired by nature, designed to amaze and crafted by hand. The Canna Guitar stands for individual, truly unique and custome-made acoustic guitars with a body made of Hempstone, a fascinating material that consists purely out of natural hemp fibers and water. The ergonomic three-dimensional body allows for a closer fit, giving you a compact and comfortable playing experience.

I wanted to create a guitar, that feels and plays like an electric but sounds like an acoustic.

Handcrafted beautiful design, natural and custom-made is not everything the Canna Guitar offers. This guitar is made to be played and enjoyed, offering a rich and masterful sound.   At every step of the way, from the first carving of the handcrafted woodwork to the last, perfection and a love of music are the guiding principles in making this guitar what it is – a true work of art.

How does it sound?

As most people would agree, the most important aspect of a guitar is its sound.


When I started to develope the guitar, my greatest aspiration was to not only make it look and play great, but also to create a unique and excellent sound. With every step on my way, the sound of the guitars improved and never seized to amaze fellow luthiers and musicians.


One of the reasons for it to work is that a round body creates a more live volume compared to a square one.

It reflects the soundwaves created by the top more efficiently and therefore increasing its response. It is also creating a very directed projection which makes it a good stage instrument if you have no amplification.

Also it is 100% natural and therefore feels and sounds very natural and close to wood.
