Thank you for visiting my website
Resolute Guitars is based in the Netherlands and here is where I built instruments for the Levites of this hour.
I find it a privilege to be able to do what I love so much. Every talent is given by the Creator Himself.
And giving my talents back to Him for the Levites who serve in His House today is what drives me.
SO this all started as a hobby in 2013, I had the urge to build myself a better quality instrument. So I made plans and between all other daily routines, I found myself building my very first electric guitar. This one was finished in October 2015. And I attended the Dutch "Gitaarbouwers Meeting" with this instrument, this is an annual meeting for (hobby)luthiers in the Netherlands. Here I got rewarded with first place in the category "Electric Guitar", I was so excited! That made me decide I wanted to build another. So I did and that became the beginning of where I am today.
Early in the year 2019, I reached out to Sander de Gier from De Gier Guitars & Basses to see if it was possible to start working more in the business I'm in now. He was enthusiastic when he checked my instruments but at that time he had no opportunity to work for him. So I let it rest for the time being. Then in september 2019 Sander reached out again to me and invited me for a talk. After this chat we decided to give it a go and so I started out at De Gier Guitars & Basses in October 2019, and I'm still there! Having fun and creating beautiful instruments.
The thought of having my own brand has always been on my mind ever since I was working on my second guitar. To be able to built the instrument as I would like it to be, bringing my creativity to display. Using my talents for others. Every time I think of it, it's makes happy. And I think it is special too, to serve others that serve the King of Kings. In the end, it all belongs to Him. I just get to play a part in it, and I'm glad for that!
If you would like to know more about how I try to run my business in serving the Levites of this hour, make sure to check out the Becoming a Contributor page.
