Unfortunately there is not much information available regarding Thomas Redlin.
According to this article
, he worked as true apprentice in the workshop of Antonio Marín in Granada.
Later, he moved back to Germany and opened a workshop in Stuttgart, where he built this guitar.
This is the guitar mentioned in this topic:
I got this guitar from a guitar teacher, who used it during his guitar study in Hannover.
The neck is quite thin and very comfortable for left hand.
It has a fast response, offers a good volume and sustain and is very balanced between the registers.
The tie block is inlayed with abalone, and together with the MOP buttons of the Reischl tuners gives a bit of shiny look of the guitar.
The back and sides are made from rosewood, but I’m not sure what kind of rosewood it is. I would be grateful if other member can share some thought.
It is a lovely spruce/rosewood guitar, with which I hate to part.
Only selling to fund a commission with a delcamp luthier.
Due to the new CITES regulation, I can ship the guitar within European Union without problem.
Please consult for shipping outside EU.
I'd be happy to answer your questions or send you high quality pictures.
