TLL Guitars

In his youth, Tobias Lund Lindberg often followed his father to work, restoring the interiors of old churches and houses in the south of Sweden. Seeing how a slab of wood could turn into something beautiful really appealed to him, and woodworking quickly became one of his great passions.

Music has always been an important part of Tobias' life. At the age of fourteen he started playing the guitar – he played in different bands and wrote his own songs. When he realized that he could combine woodworking and music by actually building his own guitars, he was hooked.

Tobias spent three years at Musikinstrumentakademien (Stockholm School of Lutherie) with teachers such as Lars Rasmussen of Rasmussen Guitars and Henrik Jansson of Jansson Guitars. At school Tobias got to build everything from classical Spanish guitars to modern electrical instruments. Later, he had the great fortune to attend an apprenticeship with Otto D’Ambrosio in Providence, Rhode Island.

After all these great influences Tobias settled in his own style of focusing on electric and archtop guitars. His design inspiration comes from the great Art Deco designs of the 1930s and the clean lines of Scandinavian furniture and architecture.
