Thierry André is a guitar maker who debuted in 1998, establishing workshop in Montreal, Qc.
His formal root echoes with historic designs and traditional instruments, while he expresses in a personal way what contemporary guitar making can offer today.
Each instrument he builds becomes a timeless musical tool, and hopefully, a material expression of what intuition and inspired action bring to the work.
Often introducing new variations on traditional forms, he is known to create guitars displaying a distinctive and timeless character, each offering visual references to the past and present while delivering a musical voice that captivates with its expansive qualities.
Bringing his vision at the service of the musician, Thierry strives to transmit the very essence of the woods and materials he uses to create musical tools that will inspire several generations.
Working solo from his current studio in Quebec City, he designs, builds an ships out a limited number of one-of-a-kind instruments every year, for an eclectic and world-wide clientele ; - This connection is really what ultimately shapes the guitars he makes, and what defines the action of Andre Instruments as a whole.
