Photograph 7501963
Dutch-born master craftsman Andres de Jager has contributed largely to the birth of a new musical instrument in Australia - the classical guitar. He has made more than 100 fine classical guitars and hundreds of less specialised instruments since he came from Holland in 1952. Orders come to his shop in Perth, WA, from all over Australia and New Zealand. He spends many hours on each instrument, cures the woods and prepares them for carving himself. He also repairs instruments for the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra. Mr de Jager at work on a guitar
