I have updated my website since the sliders on the various pages were slow and didn’t work well on mobile devices.
The sliders have now been made with a different plug-in and some new photos have been added; as far as I can see they work well on iPhone and iPad. If you have any problems or comments, don’t hesitate to contact me.
The parlour guitar is making a great comeback, although for enthousiasts it has never been away!

A Dilemma Standard Parlour is available from € 1445,=
A real ‘off center soundhole parlour’ is currently being developed and will be available in the near future:
On 31 march 2015 Dilemma was on regional TV: a short documentary on me, my Dilemma guitar design and the guitar building course I do for Ambachtshuis Brabant was broadcast on Omroep Brabant TV, our regional public network. For those of you who don’t have that network on their cable system, here is a link to the network’s website :
Zaterdag 14 maart, de tweede cursusdag van de cursus ‘bouw je eigen parlour gitaar’ 2015. Omroep Brabant TV maakte een portret van mij, dat binnenkort wordt uitgezonden in het programma ‘Onder Ons’.
Today – saturday 29 november 2014 – three pupils completed their instruments during the last session of our guitar building course. Two beautiful parlour guitars and one parlour bouzouki are the result as well as three happy new owners.
With just one more session to go, the participants have now almost finished their guitars. Final assembly and setup will be their task in session 10.
I have just updated the information om my pages on Vintage & Rare; there are new pictures and prices have been adjusted to include VAT. Also Vintage & Rare have invested heavily in further improving their site, quote:
“At Vintage & Rare we continuously work on improving and optimizing the site. In the last couple of months Vintage & Rare has undergone quite the transformation. Updating the whole site and implementing new features has led to a 300% increase in traffic and email requests and every month we see the numbers rise by 10-25%.”

On Saturday 4 october 2014 mr. Emmanuel Obiabo took delivery of his custom built parlour bouzouki in St. Albans (UK).
After four months of waiting Emmanuel – who was born in Nigeria, grew up in Northern Ireland and now lives and works in England – can now add a real Celtic dimension to his collection which already comprises a guitar, banjo and mandolin!
