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 Chine., 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.
