Alex de Grassi (born February 13, 1952) is an American fingerstyle guitarist.[1] Tom Wheeler wrote in Guitar Player magazine that his technique is "the kind that shoves fellow pickers to the cliff of decision: should I practice like a madman or chuck it altogether?"[2] De Grassi was invited by his cousin William Ackerman to join the Windham Hill label and became one of the label's best sellers.[3]


De Grassi uses various guitars. Currently his primary touring/recording guitars are a custom Lowden F35c maple with a European spruce top and a custom Traugott R model Brazilian Rosewood with German spruce top. Other favorites are a custom Carlson sympitar (twelve sympathetic strings) maple with spruce top and a custom McCollum baritone (28" scale) paduk with Italian spruce top.
