Pilar

Pilar eller Anton Pilar er et gammelt instrumentbyggerfirma fra Berlin, formentlig grundlagt af Anton Pilar. Dennes søn(?) Jaroslav Pilar (1909-2001) byggede jazzguitar fra 1929-1960., men også klassiske guitarer. Guitarerne blev fremstillet efter kundernes ønsker ( Custom Shop ) og er derfor alle unikke. Der blev muligvis også forhandlet guitarer fremstillet af andre. Værkstedet eksisterer stadig, som violinbyggeri, under ledelse af Jaroslavs barnebarn Andreas von Niederhaüsern.
