We started a program of individual courses for modern lutherie.
Courses are dedicated to players or to luthiers and they cover many subjects from the setup and basic instruments regulations, to complete instrument building and electronic circuit design and construction. We also offer a professional training program to work in depth in all subjects, including guitar design, engineering and tone mastery.
Courses are from one to four days for setup or basic repairs, one week for guitar building, and two weeks or more for professional training. The website is currently in Italian but courses are also open to English speaking students.
Please inquire for the detailed courses programs and arguments. We can find the best accomodation for you, from B&B to Hotels.

ON Manne GUITARS:
We have manufactured fine guitars and basses since 1987.
Manne instruments are the natural results of our artisanal history: Essence of precision, functionality, playability and tone. All bodies and necks are hand crafted in our workshops, and most other components are engineered and developed by Manne.
Ergonomics, design and personality: Manne offers to musicians instruments ideated to be versatile and customizable, high quality, durable and reliable.
At Manne we have clear ideas: We know that “there is always a better way to do it”. This is our philosophy, which leads us to apply non conventional ideas.
With great passion and dedication, our instruments are widely appreciated internationally. As far back as 2005, Guitar Player Magazine in the USA reviewed a Manne Taos, comparing it to a Ferrari with respect to quality, engineering and design.
To date, we have sold 2,700 (about 100 each year) hand crafted instruments in 16 different countries, including China, Australia, South Africa, Finland, Sweden, UK and USA.
MANNE also produces special projects or “Special Edition” such as three instruments we built using a single Lagavulin whisky cask obtained from the distillery. These special instruments are developed based on specific collectors’ requests or on our own innovative design ideas.
Among all the many talented musicians playing our instruments, some are internationally known, including Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Zucchero, Gil Dor (Noa), Jasun & Troy Tipton, Dominique Di Piazza.
