self-taught and

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 for the first time. 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.

My Guitars

A brief

I took notice of guitar building by browsing various online forums and took my first steps in luthiery together with a good friend of mine back in 2011. After a few personal builds we got first customer requests, so we started our corporate business "Montag & Walter Custom Guitars" in 2014. In agreement with each other we parted later down the road to follow our personal goals. Since 2017 I got my own company called "Montag Custom Guitars" and work by myself.
