My name is Steven den Toom. I started building guitars at age 15 out of curiosity. I enjoyed it so much that I started an intense classical guitar building course a year later. Since then I have been improving my skills as a craftsman by meeting other artists and doing a lot of research and experimentation. My dream is to create guitars that have a wide range of tonal colour with a great dynamic range for endless ways to express oneself.
To achieve this dream I make my guitars lightweight with an original bracing pattern. This creates a very active and responsive guitar. I build my guitars in a way that combines the best of the spanish tradition while adding some new elements to satisfy modern day desires for volume and projection.
