When you see Can and Can’s guitars you can feel his discipline and passion about making a guitar. I have one fretless guitar from his hands. The guitar has amazing details in line with design approach besides its organic and wonderful sound.
Thanks for his heart!
At the beginning of this year I’ve asked Can to make a fretless guitar for me. I hadn’t known him before so I felt uncertain how the whole process of creation and the final result would be. But since the very beginning I was very surprised by the responsiveness and communicativeness of the maker – basically he consulted with me all the details connected with the instrument making and customizations via WhatsApp – starting from the selection/recommendation of the wood, shape of the head, desired sound, rosette design, planned pickup setup, etc.. . I paid him a deposit, it took maybe 2-3 months and the instrument was ready. I decided to travel and pick up the guitar on the place. We agreed on the date and to my surprise Can took me for free from the Izmir airport to his workshop and introduced me the with his craft, tools, instruments which he was working on at that time. I tested my guitar and Can mounted inside the bridge pickup and the preamp I took with me. In the end he and his girl friend invited me for the dinner and we had nice talks. It was an amazing experience and warm welcome that I often remember, also now 9 months later when I’m writing the review. The guitar is fantastic, it is very comfortable to play, it’s crafted very nicely with a sense of detail and finally I love the sound which is well balanced. I compared it with my other professional flamenco guitar from Spain and of course – the sound is different due to a different kind of instrument – but the quality is the same. I strongly believe that with such a professional approach, quality and passion Can will be very famous and renowned guitar maker same day.

I found it on Instagram and ordered it from Japan!
Communication was very polite, response was quick and I was able to order with confidence😊
Isn’t the turquoise blue binding a unique design in the world?
This is only handmade guitar is my treasure.
My dream is to visit the workshop someday.
Thank you Can Oral Guitars
Yıllarca ismi forumlardan eksik olmayan dev markaların gitarlarının çoğu elimden geldi geçti. Çok güzel gitarlar vardı aralarında ama bir türlü tamamlanmışlık hissiyatı yaşayamamıştım. Emektar perdeli bir gitarımı perdesize çevirmesi için Can’a götürdüğümde orada beklerken yeni yaptığı klasik gitarlardan birini elime aldım denemek için. Ve bastığım ilk notadan itibaren beklenen buluşmanın geldiğini ve sonunda birbirimizi bulduğumuzu hissettim. Kesinlikle klasik gitar almak gibi bir önceliğim yokken oradan iki gitarla eve döndüm 🙂 Can yakın arkadaşım, eskisi kadar olmasa da ara ara uğruyorum ve resmen terapi almış gibi eve dönüyorum. Gerek güzel dostluğu, gerek oraya gittiğimde çaldığım gitarları bana çok iyi geliyor. Duygusal yönünü bir yana bırakır ve teknik olarak ele alırsak da tuşeye çok güzel cevap veriyor. Duyarlılığı çok hassas. Ne aktarmak istiyorsam onu tekniğim elverdiğince sağlayabiliyorum. Ses yüksekliği ve teller arasındaki denge ve klavye rahatlığı ise muazzam. Ben de bir adet Can Oral yapımı klasik gitar mecvut. İlk fırsatta da yine Can’ın yaptığı perdesiz gitarlardan birini aileme katmak ve müziğimi paylaşmak istiyorum. Emeğine ve ellerine sağlık bro. Sağlıcakla
Her yeni Can Oral gitarlarını çaldığımda hissettiğim şey hikayesidir. Her gitar kullanıcının beklentisiyle oluşur ve Can Oral bu beklentileri sanatıyla en iyi şekilde hikayeleştirir. Gitarların tek bir ortak nokası vardır; Can Oral dokunuşu ve tonu.
After I ordered my guitar, Mr. Can Oral completed the guitar in 2.5 months as he guaranteed 🙂 I had some design ideas for the rosette and he applied it very well not only on the rosette but also the bridge. He sent me pictures and videos of the work being done and asked about my preferences at every stage of the build. I remember we exchanged several pics and messages as we decided on the purfling and rosette rings 🙂 In two and a half months I had a luthier-built concert guitar customized to my preferences. I had owned and played other concert guitars and the guitar he built for me is really unique in the sweetness and fullness of its sound. The volume and projection are high with a velvety smoothness to every note. Playing it is like tasting fine old wine… I highly recommend Mr. Can Oral as a very able professional luthier…
My beautiful flame maple and spruce guitar..it gets better and better. It really does! It is my first fretless and a baritone is coming too. It’s a new way of playing and listening to music. And it really sings. Rich,lush tones that hang in the air..Canoral guitars are excellent..no doubt. Sympathetic discussions about the guitar you want and efficient and prompt building .. excellent people to deal with..Highly recommended!
I ordered a baritone fretless from Can Oral a few months ago. He was very fast and clear and communication and also helped me to install pickups in the guitar. It sounds amazing and I would recommend his guitars to anyone!
