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. I build 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, which now also comes in a parlour size. 

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.

NOTE: due to the large number of projects I am working on as an architect momentarily and the fact that I have recently moved house and have not yet been able to re-install my workshop, I am sorry to have to inform you that I can not take any orders for instruments for the time being. I hope to restart my workshop in the spring of 2018.
