A light and expressive guitar

Quentin De Leeuw reintroduces the know-how of the neck through electric guitar while while blending Artisanat d'Art (fine craftsmanship), modern design, precision, comfort and a timeless sound.

It is in the 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 the neck through design of pre-industrial guitars while combining modernity, precision, comfort, exceptional sustain, a rich and timeless sound. "
