Luigi Maruchhi


Luigi Maruchhi (born in 1959) is a South Africa-born guitar craftsman and luthier extraordinaire, who is based in Cape Town.

He attended school in Johannesburg and later studied teaching. He taught for five years and his love for working with wood steered him into the furniture industry. His passion for making instruments prompted him to find someone to teach him how to make violin.

He began making guitars and taught people how to make an acoustic guitar. In 2016, he participated in the Music In Africa Instrument building and repair workshop.
