BM1My name is Benjamin. My official musical education started at the Thelma Yellin high school of the arts, where I was playing bass in the jazz music program. It was only after I finished high school that I picked up a guitar, apparently because it was capable of making more noise than a bass…

I was introduced to the technical side of musical instruments In 2000, when I started working at Zamir Havkin’s piano restoration workshop. between 2003 and 2005 I studied industrial design at the Holon Institute of Technology, After which I started learning and practicing lutherie, alongside piano restoration.

In 2009 I started working as an independent, building and repairing guitars. I opened my current workshop in 2011, in which I build custom-ordered instruments and teach the craft of guitar making.
