Douglas Pringle – Classical Guitar Luthier

Douglas Pringle’s engineering career has spanned work with NASA, Intel, Pfizer and MiMedx in the areas of manufacturing, management and research and development. As a luthier he has built 89 classical guitars since 1987. During the past 2 years he has worked intensively on the design and development of several innovations on the classical guitar.
Some of the innovations include a pyramidal lightweight bridge, all wood lattice bracing, ultra lightweight soundboard, removable neck and soundboards, intentional asymmetry, double back and sides and compliance mapping of the soundboard.


– Douglas is an intensely private man, clearly intelligent and a great builder with a scientific mind to the build of the guitar (and clearly everything else).  His guitars are super powerful and with the help of a classical guitar performance consultant, have achieved an excellent balance of voice and musicality coupled with that power.
