1976 Born in Czechoslovakia
Martin Klema was born on October 23, 1976, in Ilava, Czechoslovakia. His father was a veterinarian, and his mother, an economist. As a 6-year old, he started taking guitar lessons. After completing primary school, he wanted to continue to study the guitar.
1990 Years of Training
A plan was made for Martin to attend the ilina Conservatory, a music school in Slovakia. Instead, Martin chose to study the production of guitars in Luby u Chebu, from 1990 to 1995. In 1991, Martin created his first handmade guitar.
Beginnings of Own Production
After completing his studies, he continued to work in Cheb, where he participated in the mass production of violins, followed by his return to Slovakia, where he worked in the company PetSlov. It was there that he assisted in the production of cymbals. In 1996, he started his own company, with the first production of KLEMA guitars.
97 First Success
The first exposure for Klema Guitars was at the Music Fair in Frankfurt in 1997. By the year 2000, production had moved to a farm in Kamenicany. Quickly the company grew with the addition of the first employee, Brano Paulen. At this time, the monthly production was between 3 to 5 guitars.
Each Coin Has Two Sides
By 2005, the demand for a Klema guitar exceeded the capabilities of a small company. So, Martin began to look into the mass-production of his guitars. The dilemma, however, was how to maintain the highest level of quality that Klema Guitars had become known for. A factory was set up in China, where Martin traveled to extensively, in order to maintain quality control. This experience proved to be priceless to Martin, since this was the initial process for his first original series of guitars: The White Line.
