100 years of European traditions in luthiery

Kremona guitars and ukuleles are the product of Bulgaria's venerable Kremona lutherie. The workshop was established in 1924 and has created models relied upon by musicians throughout the world. Recognized for superb build quality and expansive tone, Kremona musical instruments are one of the industry's astonishing values. The expanded North American distribution allows you to discover this tranditional European handcraft today.

Why Choose Kremona

Rich history

Our founder mastered his craft in Markenukirchen, a centuries-old luthier town. This village was the center of German musical instrument making, with dozens of violin and guitar builders. Christian Frederick Martin, the founder of C.F. Martin Guitars, was born there and built his first guitars there. Nearly a century of experience later, our workshop continues the attention to detail of the hand-built process.


Building by hand in the European tradition, Kremona has no outsourcing, with all the components put together in the same workshop. Our team finds only the very finest tonewoods available for the expert luthiers to craft these beautiful instruments.

Premium quality

Kremona USA offers a 50-point in-house inspection and adjustment perfomed before shipment. Whether the instrument goes to a store or direct to the musician, it comes perfectly setup, maintained, and prepared for playing and performance.

Modern improvements

Our long legacy or handcrafted lutherie doesn’t mean we are stuck in the past. We are continually adopting and devising new technologies, techniques, tools, machines, and other innovations. While we stay true to our hand-built roots, our luthiers have every contemporary solution required for building the best instruments for modern guitarists.

Great Value

Compare a handcrafted Kremona to boutique brands or luthier-custom made instruments, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the high quality brought to an instrument with a budget-friendly price.

Case included

We care about the instruments we create, from the time we build them until they are placed into the hands of the player, and beyond. Each guitar and ukulele in every series comes with a hard cases or deluxe padded gig bag.
