Wolfgang Jellinghaus was born in 1951 in Dortmund, Germany. The son of Walter Jellinghaus, a maker of guitars and zither -guitars, Wolfgang learned to make guitars under his father's guidance.  In 1978, he opened Musik Jellinghaus GmbH and in 1983, created Martinez Guitars. Fast forward, in 2003 in partnership with Kenny Hill and Alex Wang, Wolfgang helped set up the Martinez guitar factory in China. In 2013, Wolfgang sold Musik Jellinghaus GmbH, and set up Milestones of Music in China, a small boutique traditional workshop dedicated to building a line of custom guitars designed to capture the essence of maker's like Lacote, Torres, Hauser, Ramirez among others whose instruments set milestones in the history of the guitar, but also seeks to offer innovative designs that will set new milestones for the guitar. The Milestone of Music workshop is set up very much like the José Ramirez shop was during the early 1960s. It employees nine people: five luthiers, one assistant doing rough work, and two French polishers, and an administrator. Wolfgang designs guitars, oversees production, buys and selects woods, and not least helps market them.

This guitar is his tribute to Matthais Dammann (born 1957 in Frankfurt, currently living Eastern Bavaria). Matthais rose to fame in 1988 when one of this guitar won the Grand Prix at an international competition in Paris, and soon guitarists of the caliber of Manuel Barrueco and David Russell were playing Dammann guitars. Wolfgang's Dammann model offers the features that contemporary guitars often demand, such as a raised fingerboard, a 20th fret, a sandwich top of cedar, Nomex, and lattice bracing.  I bought this guitar up at the end NAMM show, directly from Wolfgang. As one might guess, makers generally bring the best examples of their work to this show, so this is a superb example of his work.
