Adam Buchwald – A History
Since elementary school, Adam has been a fervent musician, spanning mastery in instruments ranging from saxophone to mandolin to banjo; an infatuation that would stoke an adoration of music production and put him on track to his renowned tenure today.
As with any guitar, it is the synthesis of so many skills that leads to the quality of guitar musicians cherish. At an early age, Buchwald worked alongside his father in a machine factory where regular collaboration with world-class machinists from Germany and Italy would align Buchwald with a new medium to interact with music through. These maestros of machining inspired his curiosity for engineering and design and led him to fantasizing about the synthesis of those skills and music.

Buchwald grew to become a talented musician, but perhaps more serendipitously, it was playing in bluegrass bands in New York that led him to meeting Bob Jones – an exceptionally skilled guitar repair expert and eventually Buchwald’s mentor.
Under Jones’ guidance, Buchwald became a savant of luthiery, leading him to establish his own shop and setting him down a path to instrument-making mastery.
Premium Guitars at Circle Strings
Adam carefully engineers not just the guitars he’s enlisted to make, but the guitarist’s experience to ensure that every player has the right guitar for them. To do this, he begins a careful discussion process with prospective guitarists to tailor the materials and designs for their needs, specifically. Then, through a combination of handmade and modern techniques, he begins a process toward perfecting a design direct to the client. State-of-the-art CNC machines ensure every part and piece is accurately fitted and measured while deft and careful hands smooth and contour each section so that the final guitar is a homage to even its owner’s most specific tastes.
