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.
Within a couple of years, Magneto Guitars has become the guitar of choice for many recording and touring musicians all over the world.
All instruments are designed and handbuilt in one and the same place, a place where luthiers and musicians meet to create the Magneto Artistry.
