13/7/2020 Guitar summit canceled

Due to the coronavirus the Guitar Summit in Mannheim is canceled this year. Therefore the guitars I built for the show will be for sale directly, brand new and never played! Find them under Instruments - In Stock.
Hope to see you in Germany in 2021!

28/1/2020 NAMM-SPAM

The NAMM show in Anaheim was a great success and definitely worth repeating! Enjoy these vids:

17/12/2019 - bass release: Maximus

I’m proud to present the Maximus: the VanderMeij bass guitar! After a year of designing, trying, tweaking and building I’m beyond excited of how these two 5-string beasts turned out.

I will take them to NAMM for everyone there to try out.

These two are 34"-37" multiscale fivestrings, loaded with Darkglass Electronics tone capsules and Haussel pickups they sound as brutal as they look.

I will be working on a Maximus page and order form on the website, but if you have questions already hit me up via the contact form or social media!


namm 2020

VanderMeij Guitars will be at the next NAMM show.
I am working hard to present a nice variety of Magistras and the Maximus that will be launched this fall.

Come and visit us in Hall D, booth 3240!

youtube review by soulhenge

I´ve sent the latest Magistra I finished to Milian from the YouTube channel Soulhenge to review. Check out the review video he made! 

'VanderMeij Guitars blew me away from the first second I saw and played them. They are superbeautiful, perfect in every detail and they sound and play great. Speaking about guitars...'



'VanderMeij Guitars stands for true craftsmanship. The sound, playability, materials, appearance and esthetics. All these elements are the best of the best! It's a great honour to play on a guitar of this quality.'



'Koen is a true artist! He knows how to make THE killer axe. Not only does he make the most beautiful guitars, playing and hearing his guitars is like a dream come true.'
