about Rob van Leuven

rob2014 breed

Hello, I am Rob van Leuven, architect and luthier; welcome to my website!

Building stringed instruments has been a passion ever since my college days. Demand for my instruments is now growing and so I have turned my passion into my second business, building four types of instruments mainly aiming at folk, blues and jazz musicians and singer/songwriters: parlour guitar, irish bouzouki, parlour bouzouki and my own design: dilemma. All instruments are handcrafted by me in my small workshop in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and I would be more than happy to build a fine guitar or bouzouki for you too!

Also, I’m an architect by profession and practice architecture as a member of a co-operative of building professionals which I founded: archifoor coöperatie u.a.
