Luthier Profile

Luis Alberto Feu de Mesquita and his ancestry goes back to Andalusia in the south of Spain where the modern guitar evolved. Coming from this region, he was exposed to the richness and passion of Flamenco from an early age. He built his first guitar in his mid-teens and ended up making guitars for other members in his band.  By age 18 he had already built and repaired several guitars, ultimately finding that construction was more fulfilling than playing.

After moving to Canada in 1970 to attend college Luis graduated as a mechanical engineer, began his career, married, and had children. Throughout this entire period of time, he continued building and repairing guitars after work and on weekends. Later, life changing events brought him to the summation that he needed to nourish his passion for building guitars and LFdM Guitars was born. From then, Luis subsequently undertook more formal training with master luthier Sergei de Jonge to further refine his skills.

Engineering has also contributed significantly to his approach to luthiery and brought out the desire for perfection with every instrument he built.

This beautiful LFDM tenor ukulele was handcrafted of premium Bocote wood back and sides with a nice tight-grain musician’s grade Canadian Sinker Western Red Cedar soundboard. Ebony wood fingerboard and Cocobolo wood bridge with side position markers on positions on 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, and 19 for quick top down reference. Flaming BigLeaf Maple wood top and back binding with Maple wood spalt headstock veneer and matching arm bevel for an easy cradle when playing in keeping with the theme of the instrument. Matching BigLeaf Maple wood spalted end graft and rosette inlay with black-white-black wood trim all throughout. Side sound port for monitor like experience. Slotted headstock design with professional Grover geared tuners for quick and precise tuning.

Deep resonant tone with excellent clarity. Nice projection and sustain. A wonderful ukulele for both the recreational player and the professional musician. ID#: 190018
