A light and expressive guitar
Quentin De Leeuw reintroduces the know-how of the neck-through guitar while mixing it with a modern craftsmanship in the tradition of the great French guitar makers.

It is in l'Oise, his native region, that he chose to set up his workshop "De Leeuw Guitars" 6 years ago. The workshop is located in Pont-Sainte-Maxence.
"I want to offer high quality electric guitars inspired by pre-industrial guitar making, with a particular focus on comfort and balance, exceptional sustain, and a timeless and rich sound. "

La grande majorité des Instruments de la famille des guitares sont fabriquées de manière industrielle, chaque ouvrier assurant une tâche spécifique dans la chaîne de production. Notre approche d’artisan facteur est celle d'une conception sur mesure aussi bien pour nos modèles de collection que pour notre Custom Shop.

Our instruments are made to order and the De Leeuw Guitars team pays attention to every detail, from the choice of woods to the selection of pickups that will enhance your playing. This is to guarantee you a unique and expressive instrument, which will be the extension of your musicality.
The models of the Air series evoke the art of French style by combining lightness, sensuality and character.

With its soft and sensual shape and "non traditional" electronic configuration, the AIR series will take you to new creative territories. From electro-acoustic to warm crunch, sculpt your sound to achieve unparalleled expressiveness.
