Guitars and wood work are his passion…After having completed a successful guitar- making course at the Canadian School of Lutherie, Toronto’s Kurt Stein Tissera seems to be going places. “My passion is making custom-made guitars,” says Kurt. “I’ve already built two in the first month and both were sold in the first week.”

“It was a great experience turning five different exotic woods into a completely custom instrument for a very capable musician,” said Kurt.

An accomplished lead-guitarist, twenty-year-old Kurt plays for a number of bands in Toronto. His father is Sri Lankan veteran journalist Dirk Tissera, Editor of the Sri Lankan Anchorman in Toronto and mother Michelle Tissera, who is Indian.

Besides guitars, Kurt also makes fountain pens out of stupidly expensive Honduran rosewood burl and 24kt gold- plated hardware. These hand-crafted pens are from some of the finest exotic woods.
