About Sadilah

Instruments can be manufactured in may ways.  I believe that only the human hand can create an instrument with a soul.  A handmade instrument brings with it a quality that automation can only mimic, the heart and soul of the craftsman can be felt in the way an instrument feels, sounds and performs.  At Sadilah, every guitar is made by hand, one at a time.

My name is Chuck Schlesinger and I am an instrument maker located in Albuquerque, NM and have been building guitars since 2018.  I am thankful for all the support and knowledge given to me by other luthiers and mentors.   The satisfaction I receive by designing and building a guitar or bass and then watching a talented musician bring it to life has no equal.  Take a look around the site and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or something piques your interest.

Mission

To make the very best instruments from the finest materials for the discerning musician

Vision

Every guitar should provide the player with a means to express oneself to the fullest.  Only by using the best tone woods and components can I accomplish exactly what the guitarist wants from his or her instrument. 

My goal with every build is to create an instrument that becomes one with the player and becomes an extension of the musician.

Construction Methods

All bodies and necks are completely handmade from raw lumber.  From these blank canvases the instrument will emerge one step at a time.

Materials

I use traditional materials for bodies and necks such as Ash, Basswood, Mahogany, Maple, Limba and many more.  

If you have a particular wood you are looking for, for its tonal quality or esthetics, just let me know.  I can build the guitar of your dreams with the materials you desire.
