"This guitar is like a friend! I know everything about my instrument – what it was made of, who made it, where and how it was made.
I trust it like a dear friend; real feelings. This guitar has a soul! I understood that the more I play it, the more I want to play it.
Just like a real friendship – it will only become stronger as years go by"


Dmitriy Chetvergov

“My Israeli custom-made Polak/ERG gives me the ability to combine all of my playing styles
Such diversity is achieved due to the incredible properties of wood that has a unique ability to accurately react to changes in sound extraction, and is a key value for ERG Custom Guitars”

Dmitriy Maloletov

"The precision of their attention to details and the piece of soul that is granted to every guitar by the crafter makes me look at their instrument in a different way"
