About me

My name is Pavel Goldberg.  For more than 20 years
I have been making guitars and researching the acoustics of musical instruments.


I started my career at the Musical Instrument Factory in St. Petersburg Russia in 1998.

I was 20 years old.  Within a year I had reached the position of senior inspector of the quality control department and head of the acoustics laboratory.

I was educated as an audio-visual technician at St. Petersburg State University of Cinema and Television. My graduate thesis was devoted to the study of the disharmonic of  overtones of steel and nylon guitar strings. After graduating with honors, I was invited to continue my studies in postgraduate education.  In postgraduate school, I studied the vibrations of the soundboard of a guitar.


In 2000, he founded his own guitar workshop, which exists to this day.  When I make guitars, I am constantly researching various acoustic issues on guitars and other musical instruments. 

From 2000 to 2010 my workshop produced acoustic guitars.
