Steven den Toom is a Dutch luthier who set up his workshop in Germany in 2016. He previously followed an extensive guitar building course in Belgium where he developed a true curiosity and passion for the Spanish traditional guitar making. Vicente Arias, Antonio de Torres and Francisco Simplicio’s guitars are his major sources of inspiration, and their influence can definitely be felt in his lightweight, dynamic and responsive guitars.
This refined and delicate maple guitar is built incredibly light. It is amazingly sensitive and has an immediate response. Built on a slightly smaller plantilla, this guitar has a 50 mm nut width, what makes it easy and lovely to play. Finally, the thin maple back and sides bring something authentic and true to the timbre as well as some beautiful tone colours.
