Fritz Kollitz was an expert on woods used for musical instruments and gained an international reputation for his knowledge and service to violin and guitar luthiers alike. As the founder of Fritz Kollitz: Fine Tone Woods, he played an important role in the growing awareness and education of the global concern over the limited supplies of some rare woods sought for instrument making. In the early 2000s Fritz handed over the company to his son, yet remained in a supportive role until his passing in 2015.
