the workshop

VanderMeij Guitars was located in a workshop in the North of Amsterdam from January 2015 to October 2021. In November 2021, the workshop was moved to a bigger facility on a business park in a nearby town, Lisse.

In this workshop, every guitar is built from start to finish: we have woodworking machines to cut down big chunks of wood into guitar sized pieces, a spraybooth in the back for the lacquering - and the tools for everything that happens in between!
Obviously, our workshop doesn't lack a showroom with finished instruments. We have a comfortable couch and some cool amplifiers, cabinets and effects to test our demo models on.

Check out this workshop tour with Merel Bechtold to get an idea of how the guitars are made! Filmed in the summer of 2021 this was still in the Amsterdam shop, but other than the location the production line hasn't changed.
