We at De Gier Guitars & Basses are also keeping ourselves up to date with the latest technologies as we are now in the process of testing UV-curing finish.
So now we have people in white suits carrying UV lamps in our workshop…
Pretty exciting, because it will mean we can finish a guitar finish within two days in stead of three weeks..!
And now, my dear friends, it’s time for some wow’s, oooh’s and aahh’s… check this out… Our latest prototype:
It will be done in a couple of weeks, it’s hanging in the spraybooth at the moment just waiting to be finished. Lightweight mahogany body, flame maple top, even for a prototype. Although we noticed a small knot in the wood that was invisible to the eye when selecting the wood for the top. You can see it on the picture on the left. We’re glad it’s ‘just’ a prototype.. This one has an African Blackwood fingerboard and two-piece mahogany neck by the way. You can expect a short demovideo of this one maybe even before Christmas..!
Hi again! First of all thank you for taking a moment of your precious time to pay a visit to our news section and read about what’s going on at De Gier Guitars..! Life would be very boring without all of you who make this possible, so once again a BIG thank you!
This week we have a short demo video of Elisa Krijgsman who came by our shop to pick up his custom ordered De Gier Reflection. This guitar will show you how versatile a Reflection can be! It has a set of Bare Knuckle NailBomb pickups, LR Baggs piezo Tremolo with Control-X preamp, Grover locking tuners. A Mahogany body with a beautiful quilted maple top. The neck is made of the finest rock maple with a nice African Blackwood fingerboard. Enough talk, here’s the video:
Elisa Krijgsman plays with Neal Morse and they recently had a show at ‘De Boerderij’ in Zoetermeer as part of their European tour. We had the opportunity to be at the soundcheck and we’ve made a couple of pictures:
Elisa bending it to the limit! Neal, Elisa & Jessica
And our good friend Vincenzo Maurogiovanni performed at the Euro BassDay at Verona, Italy! He played on a six string Elevation… You’ve probably seen that one before, and if not, scroll down.
