Peter Engberg

It’s really an honour for me to be able to work with guys like Peter. He’s a top class professional who knows guitar inside out. The fact that he has acquired four different instruments from me over the years, and that he keeps using them as part of his musical vocabulary, speaks a lot to me. Thank you, Peter, for the confidence in our work. Warms my heart.
