Knooren Handcrafted Instruments are made in Schimmert, the Netherlands.
They are handcrafted and made out of the finest wood and electronics. Knooren basses are being used by such players as John Patitucci, Brian Bromberg and Motohiko Hamase .
Like the basses, the Knooren guitars are made with detail and perfection. Any type of guitar is available, from Strat models to semi-acoustic, nylon-string with midi pickups!
Every guitar will be custom made.
Besides making and repairing guitars and basses we also repair double basses (uprights). We do have a large collection of double basses available for sale.
If you have any questions or if you would like to get some more information about an instrument email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
