The Great Guitar Build-off
Unquendor Guitars - Daniel van Veen
My name is Daniel and I might be known for Unquendor Guitars, a part time guitar builder from the Netherlands making guitars one at a time in a small workshop in a shed in the back of my garden.
These days I also have a YouTube channel where I post both building and informative videos about guitar making.
For the Great Guitar Build Off 2021 I'm planning to make a special edition of my 'Nessa' guitar model.
The Nessa is a modern but very versatile guitar. My take on a super strat.
By using different species of wood, hardware and finish I can give each Nessa her own character and personality designed to match any playing style.
A striking feature on the Nessa is the inlayed top which gives the guitar a consistent 'false binding' of the main body wood around the entire body.
The Nessa is meant to be played and I take great care in the playability and quality of each guitar.
My main focus is always on playability and quality and less on radical shapes and design features which I hope I'm able to show in the videos for this Great Guitar Build Off.
