    Anybody heard of these guys? From Amsterdam.

    They have one model - standard modern super strat design.

    Prices pretty reasonable. But I can't find a single thing about them on the usual forums.

    he's a relatively newer builder, but the owner works with the guys from aristides regularly iirc. I have no idea if they're any good, but that recent galaxy build he did was sick. There's a couple reviews on his facebook page but other than that I haven't heard much about them.

    Yeah, they look sick indeed. But ALL of those modern guitars look sick - Skervesen, Mayones, RAN, Daemoness - they all look amazing haha. Shame it's so hard to actually fine one to play before putting down large amounts of money.

    I'm thinking of a custom, shopping around a bit, and really just overwhelmed with choice.

    They have a pretty good rep over here in The Netherlands, he consistently puts out very solid guitars!

    From what I've heard he's a very good builder with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail.

    There is a user on here that owned on and was selling it I believe last summer. He would be a good resource of information. I'll try to find his name on here.

    I havent tried one of his personal builds, but he's worked on the Aristides builds I own which are all flawless. I've heard nothing but excellent things about his personal builds though from people who have tried them.

    I've heard good things and his work looks solid from what I've seen on FB!

    I own a magistra 7 baritone. Great guitar overall and Koen is a great dude to work with. I still play my kiesel over it but It’s a nice guitar to have.

    Veneer or not, it looks like he did all the staining himself then added the stars after.
