14/4/2023 - find us at namm

Unfortunately, the picture is an old one and I won't be at NAMM in person this year. But like in 2020 I've joined forces with Marek from Driftwood custom amps and cabs, and there are two Magistras at booth 4843. Go check out his amazing work, and give the VanderMeij Magistras a spin while trying out the amps. 


Also they're both available for sale.

18/12/2021 new workshop

After almost seven years in my workshop in Amsterdam, it was time for an upgrade! Although it lacks the coolness of the location of the former shop, it has got everything else we were missing: daylight, twice as much space, a production facility downstairs and room for assembly, office and showroom upstairs. And all on a stone's throw away from the colorful flowerfields this town Lisse is famous for. So let's get this going!

'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.'
