Josef Herclik - Luthier

Josef Herclick was a Bohemian Luthier that was actively building high quality Violins, Violas and Guitars in the early 20th century.

He was mainly known for his Violins, which sell these days for as much as $5,000 at auction. His guitars are a little more rare and can sometimes be found at a lower price.

"The Herclik's I've played both sounded better with Nylon strings, this likly is due to the unique bracing style Mr. Herclik used." said our shop manager, Randall Van Dyke. "His maple back and side guitars have a deep complex voice, considering the shallow depth and wood choice."

We've had a couple pass through the shop & we are always on the lookout for more. If you have a Herclik that you want to sell, please drop us a line.
