MOV GUITARS LABORATORY

M.O.V.Guitars is an acronym that takes origins from the initials of Master Luthier Restorer Marco Omar Viola, who graduated in 1999 at the “Civica Scuola di Liuteria di Milano”, where he attended the “plucked instruments” construction course.

His passion for music, and guitar in particular, was born very early and soon he became enthusiastic about every technical aspect of the instrument, leading him to the decision of making it his profession.

During the years of his study and after his graduation, he worked as a collaborator in different laboratories building and repairing all kinds of stringed instrument.
