magneto project papersPassion, Experience and Friendship

Magneto Guitars was born out of passion, friendship, and the dream to create a level of quality never before reached in guitar manufacturing.

After 20 years of experience in the field of electric guitar design and manufacturing, Christian Hatstatt decided to create a new line of high caliber instruments that would appeal to the most discerning musicians.

The input of top guitar players and years of workshop repair helped to set a foundation for new ideas.The development of the first instruments was completed in September 2008. One month later, Christian joined forces with his old friend Kei San and a team of the world's finest luthiers, and Magneto Guitars was born.

All instruments are designed and handbuilt in one and the same place, a place where luthiers and musicians meet to create the Magneto Artistry.
