Lefteris Kalantonis

He was born in Athens in 1981. He studied applied arts and has a Bachelor in design.

From an early age he played the guitar, studying classical, modern improvisational and traditional music.

He has been an instrument maker for 15 years now, specialized in the construction of classical guitar.

His work is the result of research on the history of classic guitar construction. He has studied hundreds of instruments from all periods. His guitar making is based on the Spanish tradition, through a contemporary approach concerning sound, ergonomics and aesthetics. They are characterized by sonic versatility and rich sound colors combined with power and sustain, elements that allow the guitarist to express himself in any musical environment either in a live performance or in studio conditions. In recent years he has maintained a workshop in Halandri Athens, where he exclusively engages in the construction and repair of classical guitar.

He has participated in many exhibitions in Greece and abroad.
