About me

Lucio Antonio Carbone was born in Milan, Italy in 1959. He became interested in guitar making in his mid-teens and he has made lutherie his profession since 1983.

In 1989 he established a workshop in Milan: where he keeps his activity going, matching a brisk trade of new and used guitars.
