Wilm Stotzel began his career in instrument construction by working on pianos at Jenkin Piano Service in New Zealand. Afterwards, he began to work with Paddy Burgin and David Freeman, both New Zealand-based luthiers, before moving back to his native Germany to work alongside Heiner Dreizehnter, and beginning his own line of guitars shortly thereafter.
Wilm's got an amazing sense of curves in his designs, and they're optimally engineered with the fingerstylist in mind. As a result, I love playing his instruments in altered tunings, where the basses can really snap.
