A lot will change in 2021 for De Gier. I cannot tell much yet, but one thing I can say is that we're going to build our own pickups for our basses. That's exciting! We are now in the setting up and prototyping stage. Once we have our designs tested and ready, we will offer [...]
New feature for Lowlander: a pushbutton switch on the pickguard that lets you switch the humbucker from serial (classic T bird) to parallel (less mids, more open, lower output). Each pickup has its own pushbutton switch, so that you can have maximum variety of sound. The sound of a parallel wired classic T bird pickup [...]

From 1/1/2019 and onward all Soulmate basses will receive a new headstock, namely the same headstock as BeBop basses have.

We have added a History page to the website. Soon we will also add a new gallery of discontinued models. We have discontinued Authority and Junior, but before that several other models have existed that we no longer offer. I think it would be nice to have a least a record online of some of [...]
The guitar models Authority and Junior are no longer available. Currently I offer only the Surfer guitar model and the rest are basses. I intend to offer fresh guitar designs later on to replace Authority and Junior. I still have a few demo models for sale, with huge discounts, if anyone is interested.
Good news! We found a supplier who's happy to build our own custom Lowlander case for us. It is a traditional plywood case, with dark green pluche inside, completely form fit to our Lowlander model.
