How to order


Every guitar is unique and made one by one in my workshop in Daarlerveen, the Netherlands.

This  is a collaboration between the customer and the luthier from the beginning to the delivery
of the guitar once it is finished.

You can visit me and see me in person in my shop,  but of course we can also correspond by email.

To secure your place on the waiting list, I ask for a € 500,- prepayment. Please note that this prepayment
is to cover initial expenses such as materials for your guitar and is non-refundable.
The remaining balance is due before delivery of the guitar.

My guitars are made directly for the client and most of the orders are placed directly through me,
but from time to time I will have available guitars in stock and through my dealer:
The Fellowship of Acoustics :

The warranty for my guitars is valid throughout a period of 5 years. (and as long as I am active
as a luthier) This warranty only applies to the first owner and can be used for damages caused by
defects or caused by wrongful workmanship, but it excludes all damages caused by wrongful use of
the instrument (bumps, heat, cold, humidity, dryness, hits,…).

My workshop’s relative humidity is between 40-50 % during the building process.
It is of great importance that the humidity is controlled even after the guitar is delivered!
