Fabrizio Reginato was trained as a wood carver and cabinet maker in his native Fonte Alto, in the North Italian province of Treviso. He came to Australia in 1952 and worked for a macaroni factory, cut cane, picked grapes and worked as a carver and turner in a Brisbane furniture factory. Then he set himself up as an instrument maker, concentrating on guitars. Since then the demand for his guitars has grown, including orders from such tourist virtuoso as the Spaniard Jose Luiz Gonzalez. Reg, as he is called, wants to make medieval instruments such as the lute, pendora, cettera and viol de gamba. All the wood used by Fabrizio Reginato on his new guitars is imported from overseas, usually North Europe or South America.
