American Roots - Made in Europe

The VGS Root Series combines the construction of the American acoustic guitar with the tradition of

European guitar making. The development team, consisting of guitar makers, musicians and designers, is based in the so called “Musikwinkel“ (= „musical corner“) in the Saxon Vogtland - the centre of traditional European instrument making. The father of the modern acoustic guitar, C.F. Martin, was also domiciled here, before he went to the New World and laid the foundation for the instrument that we know today. This, along with the extensive know-how in developing musical instruments, inspired us at VGS to produce high-grade acoustic guitars in Europe.

Traditional handiwork and love for detail are as much in the fore as the use of state-of-the-art machinery and latest technology. The solid tonewood tops from European spruce are naturally dried for years and hand-selected. The top bracing was custom-attuned to the desired Root sound. The result are guitars with a constant quality of sound and manufacturing, produced in an environment that reflects our high demand for guitar making that is socially and ecologically compliant.


Die GEWA music ist derzeit von jeglicher Kommunikation abgeschnitten

Sehr geehrte Kunden, sehr geehrte Musiker und Musikinteressierte,

Aufgrund schwerer Überschwemmungen in Folge des Unwetters vom 24.Mai 2018 musste der Strom in beiden Werken an unserem Firmensitz in Adorf/Vogtland abgeschaltet werden.
In Folge dessen sind die GEWA Mitarbeiter derzeit weder telefonisch noch per Fax oder Email erreichbar. Neue Aufträge können nicht erfasst werden. Bereits übermittelte Aufträge können erst versandfertig gemacht werden wenn die Aufräumarbeiten im Lager abgeschlossen und die Energieversorgung für unsere IT Systeme wiederhergestellt ist.

Wir bitten höflichst um Ihr Verständnis.

GEWA music is currently disconnected from communication

Valued customers, dear musicians,

Due to severe flooding in both of our factories in our company seat Adorf the electricity had to be shut down.
In consequence GEWA staff is currently not available via phone, fax and email. Shopping carts within B2B Shop can currently not be submitted. Orders that have been submitted already, cannot be processed until our stores have been cleaned up and electricity supply has been restored.

We kindly ask for your patience.
