About me

My name is Frank Montag and I'm a self-taught and passionate luthier since 2011. When it comes to building electric guitars, I love every single step from the conception phase over the building process, all the way to the moment you play the guitar through an amp for the first time.

I took my first steps in guitar building together with a good friend of mine, with whom I started our corporate business "Montag & Walter Custom Guitars GbR" back in 2014. Since 2017 I got my own company called "Montag Custom Guitars" and work by myself. Next to the luthiery I have a degree in multimedia design and I'm employed at a creative agency.


Custom shop for modern guitars

I build modern electric guitars in lovingly handwork. Every customer has individual desires. That's why every guitar has to be unique and different as well. Regardless of whether you want multiscale, extended range or headless constructions – my guitars are tailor-sized to your needs. Check out the configurator to find out more about your possibilities.
