Elevated Fingerboard (or raised fingerboard) can be a bit of a misleading name as it is the top of the guitar that slopes down. Nevertheless, “I will never go back to playing guitars without a raised (elevated) fingerboard. They are simply easier to play and allow great reach and playability in the upper positions”. In many cases, the sound is great too. 

Luthier Wolfgang Jellinghaus who was born in 1951 in Dortmund, Germany. His father, Walter Jellinghaus, was himself a guitar maker and naturally introduced the craft to Wolfgang at a young age. In 1978, Wolfgang opened a retail music shop called Musik Jellinghaus GmbH and in 1983, he became involved in manufacturing and so created Martinez Guitars in China designing their first line of guitars. In 2013 he set up a small boutique, a traditional workshop that specialized in making high-quality guitars in the style of such great historical makers as Lacote, Torres, Hauser, and Ramirez, among others. Wolfgang’s Guitars are very unique, and maybe some of the best made guitars in today’s market.
