Georges Alloro A French maker of custom instruments, primarily occupied with building and modifing string instruments these days and the products you most often see from his workshop are electric and acoustic harp guitars, some of them built under the Guitare-Veena brand but in that case the harp stings are more intended as sympathetic resonators, but in the past he alongside his apprentice Gontran Onraedt have done anything from wind instruments to drums. His designs are often very visually exiting and the site is worth a visit just to oogle. Also holds from time to time classes in instrument building.
