 Jacky Walraet a perfectionné ses compétences en lutherie à la célèbre école «CMB» en Belgique, où il cumule plus de 25 ans d’expérience en tant que professeur de construction de guitares. Il a très tôt eu la chance, l’honneur et le plaisir de travailler pour de grands noms dans le monde du jazz et rapidement établi une réputation solide. En tant que membre fondateur du projet >Leonardo Guitar Research< (LGRP), il a acquis une expérience considérable en matière d’utilisation de bois alternatifs locaux et non tropicaux dans la fabrication de guitares. Plus récemment, Jacky s’est concentré sur la création de nouveaux designs, en fabriquant à la main un nombre limité d’instruments uniques, chacun possédant ses propres caractéristiques visuelles et sonores.
